In this session, we will review the characteristics of scleroderma and pulmonary hypertension, focusing on the multiple ways scleroderma causes PH and the impact of the involvement of other organs, such as the heart, kidneys and muscles. Our multi-disciplinary panel including specialists in pulmonology, rheumatology and cardiology will discuss recent developments in the treatment of this disease and answer questions from the audience.
