Pseudovitiligo in Systemic Sclerosis.

Abstract

Progressive Systemic Sclerosis is a chronic connective tissue disease characterized by sclerosis of skin with involvement of the internal organs. The cause of PSS is unknown but autoimmune mechanisms and primary damage to blood vessels have been proposed to explain its pathogenesis. We report a case of PSS with widespread depigmentation resembling vitiligo.
