The so-called 'connective tissue disorders' hold a particular fascination to both the rheumatologist and the dermatologist, and the diagnosis of, sometimes subtle, changes in the skin can often be difficult. This book aims to give a succinctaccount ofcutaneous manifestations of the major connective tissue diseases, including the cutaneous side effects of anti-rheumatic therapy, and the main diagnostic and prognostic features and guides to their management. Although the book is intended primarily for dermatologists and rheumatologists, it will also be of value to general physicians and general practitioners. We would like to express our thanks to our colleagues in the Medical Photography Department at the Royal United Hospital, Bath, especially Tim Browne and AnnabelHancock, and to Hilary Woolf for painstakingly typing the manuscript. We would like also to thank the following who have generously allowed us to reproduce their clinical and pathological photographs. Dr T. I.

Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. Hardening of the skin is one of the most visible manifestations of the disease. It’s estimated that about 300,000 Americans have scleroderma. About one third of those people have the systemic form of scleroderma. Since scleroderma presents with symptoms similar to other autoimmune diseases, diagnosis is difficult. This issue will cover: The Genetic Basis of SSc: Genetics, Epigenetics, Mechanisms of Pathogenesis – linking fibrosis, vasculopathy and immune dysregulation, The Role of Autoantibodies in Diagnosis and Prognosis/survival; Managing Raynaud’s phenomenon and ischemic ulcers, managing SSc Lung Disease, Monitoring for and Managing Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, and many more!

Many rheumatologic diseases have prominent cutaneous findings. Careful examination of the skin may lead to prompt diagnoses, relatively noninvasive means of defining systemic disorders, and possibly better outcomes.
