About this work


This is a slightly elevated and atrophic patch over the medial right ankle. Upon examination there was a slight loss of pain sensation and sweat function tests showed a loss of sweat response in the area (in scleroderma this is caused by atrophy of sweat glands). In scleroderma the skin becomes adherent to underlying structures and atrophic.
