What Is CREST Syndrome?
A less severe form of scleroderma is called limited scleroderma, or CREST syndrome. CREST syndrome is characterized by:
- Calcinosis: Calcium skin deposits
- Raynaud's phenomenon: A condition in which the blood vessels of the fingers and toes spasm when triggered by factors, such as cold, stress or illness. Cold, painful or numb fingers and toes result, which in severe cases may become gangrenous. Learn more about Raynaud's phenomenon.
- Esophageal dysfunction: Problems with the esophagus
- Sclerodactyly: Skin damage on fingers
- Telangiectasia: Spider veins
CREST Syndrome and Pulmonary Hypertension
CREST syndrome coupled with pulmonary hypertension (elevated blood pressures within the lungs) can lead to heart and respiratory failure. See your doctor for advanced, integrated diagnosis and treatment.
