Hi, folks. My good friend has been recently diagnosed systemic sclerosis. The thing that made his doctor think about this diagnosis was Reynold phenomenon. I would like to know something more about this phenomenon in systemic sclerosis. I would really appreciate all your help with this. Thank you in advance. Bye!

Hello. Systemic sclerosis can affect tiny arterioles in finger tips, toes and other places. These vessels tend to spasm when they are exposed to cold or emotional stress. They change their color - blueness, whiteness and redness appear. This can be even noticed on ears and nose. This is familiar as Raynaud’s phenomenon. This can cause impaired oxygen supply to these areas. As a result, tiny ulcers can appear on the top of the skin. I hope I’ve helped. Bye!
