Systemic Sclerosis is a chronic condition caused by excessive secretion of collagen inside the body. Some consider it a chronic condition of the connective tissue in the body. Although it is not contagious or cancerous, it may threaten life depending on the severity of the disease. Syatemic sclerosis affects the body’s organs as one of the rheumatic autoimmune diseases, which means that the body’s immune system behaves abnormally. The main result of this is the so-called hardening of the skin and the appearance of infections and ulcers in many parts of the body, Lungs, kidneys, heart, intestinal tract and other organs, and yet there is no cure for hardened skin but alternative treatments are effective for some forms of disease available. This mini review aims to disclose some important aspects of this multiorgan disease.
