In recognition of National Scleroderma Awareness Month, HCPLive spoke with several prominent dermatologists today who addressed some of the concerns and advancements related to the rare, multi-system disease.

Scleroderma is often referred to as “morphea” by dermatologists, and the condition typically presents with the tightening and hardening of the skin. Depending on the region of the body, it can result in everything from swollen joints to lesions on the face, arms, and midsection. 

For this episode of DocTalk, Karan Lal, DO, MS, FAAD, Schweiger Dermatology Group and member of The Society for Pediatric Dermatology , returned to the program to speak on the different variations of morphea in pediatric patients, and the communal approach that is required to treat the disease among dermatologists and other branches of medicine.
