Scleroderma is a disorder that can take various forms: localized scleroderma (morphea), limited scleroderma (such as CREST syndome), and systemic sclerosis.
Dr. Sherber authored the skin chapter in the definitive textbook on scleroderma, now in second edition, and has cared for many patients with scleroderma.
In the various forms of scleroderma, tissues harden due to autoimmune activity targeting them.
Early signs can be subtle, and the cutting edge of treatment hinges on early diagnosis.
Dr. Sherber works closely with rheumatologists and other specialists to ensure comprehensive care of her scleroderma patients, and often suggests that new patients with active disease have an evaluation at The Johns Hopkins Scleroderma Center with her colleague Dr. Fredrick Wigley.
