A 62-year-old woman comes to the physician because ...
why not systemic scleroderma since i did this question wrong and i chose systemic sclerosis scleroderma , can someone explain that ?
My best guess answer to that @luke.10 is that:
a) there's no mention of any skin involvement (which there would be in order to be scleroderma)
b) Scleroderma shows pitting in the nails, not clubbing
c) There would be collagen deposition with fibrosis, not hypertrophy of the bone at joints
Saying that, I also got this wrong! (but put RA...) so I'm not claiming to "get this" Hope my thought process helps, though!
