Scleromyositis is a rare autoimmune disease which is characterized by the overlapping of the clinical symptoms of two connective tissue diseases (CTDs) --- Scleroderma (Systemic sclerosis) and Polymyositis. Although Scleroderma and Polymyositis are two well-defined autoimmune diseases, the simultaneous manifestation of the symptoms of both the conditions is termed as Scleromyositis (also called Scleroderma-polymyositis overlap syndrome). This disease can be effectively managed in a natural manner with the help of some beneficial herbal products available from Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company.

Scleromyositis: Overview

Scleromyositis is an autoimmune disorder --- that is, a disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the healthy cells, especially the connective tissues. It is a systemic connective tissue disease, which is categorized as an 'overlap syndrome.' People suffering from Scleromyositis show signs of Scleroderma and Polymyositis, both of which are two distinct connective tissue diseases.


Scleromyositis is one of the most common overlap syndromes observed in patients affected by Scleroderma. This overlap syndrome involves the immunological and clinical characteristics of Scleroderma as well as Polymyositis at the same time. Scleroderma is a group of rare disorders which is marked by the hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues, whereas Polymyositis is a rare inflammatory disorder which is marked by muscle weakness on both sides of the body.

Scleromyositis: Causes

The exact cause behind the occurrence of Scleromyositis is not clearly known to the doctors. Nonetheless, it is believed that the disease is apparently associated with an overproduction of collagen in the body. Collagen is the main structural protein which holds the body together, and is found in the bones, skin, tendons, and muscles.

An overproduction of collagen and its accumulation in the body tissues can stretch the skin abnormally, and also harden and thicken it. The condition can also be potentially damaging to some of the vital organs of the body, including the heart, kidneys, and lungs.

Scleromyositis: Symptoms

The symptoms of Scleromyositis can vary from patient to patient, because the condition is a Scleroderma-polymyositis overlap syndrome. In general, the symptoms of the disease largely involve skin. Some of the symptoms of Scleromyositis are:

  • Skin discoloration (especially affecting fingers/toes)
  • Tightening and hardening of skin
  • Skin rashes
  • Joint pain
  • Swollen joints
  • Inflammation of muscles
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Muscle weakness (usually affecting the upper arms, shoulders, and thighs)
  • Raynaud’s syndrome (a medical condition characterized by reduced blood flow – to fingers, toes, etc. – due to spasm of arteries).

Scleromyositis: Treatment

The treatment of Scleromyositis depends on the symptoms of individual patients. However, since the disease is an autoimmune disorder, the treatment mostly involves the use of immunomodulating or immunosuppressive medications.
