OBJECTIVE Assessment of disease activity is a major challenge in the management of children with localized scleroderma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) in comparison with infrared thermography in the detection of scleroderma disease activity. METHODS In 41 children with localized scleroderma, 111 lesions… CONTINUE READING
