Scleroderma of the Hands

Scleroderma can effect other joints in the body, not just the feet. Here is another Healthmark Foot and Ankle patient with calcium deposits seen in the thumb and index-finer. The white, “cloud-like” formations around the joints on this x-ray photo show calcium deposits in this patient who has multiple signs of scleroderma throughout the body.
