Abstract

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease characterised by skin thickening, microvascular injury and fibrosis, leading to multiple organ damage. Data from multi-ethinic cohorts suggest that non-whites are more likely to have severe disease. 

The study involves all patients diagnosed with systemic sclerosis (SSc, diffuse and limited cutaneous forms, and overlap syndromes) under current or previous follow-up by rheumatologist in Singapore General Hospital and Alexandra Hospital. By understanding the determinants of disease, high risk populations can be identified and more effective health interventions can be adminstered. This study aims to identify the clinical and laboratory predictors of adverse outcomes in a predominantly Chinese population so that physicians are able to better manage these patients.
