What Is SFC Type 1?


SFC type 1 is a scleroderma-related illness that can be fatal if not treated. It develops when the tissues in the body become hardened and lose elasticity due to scleroderma. This increases scar tissue and fibrosis, leading to organ dysfunction, lung disease, and even death. SFC Type 1 is also known as linear scleroderma or morphea profunda sine sclero. There are three main symptoms: painless skin thickening, breathing problems such as shortness of breath or difficulty talking, and kidney failure, which happens in about one-third of people with this condition. Unfortunately, It cannot be cured, and there is no known cause or cure yet.

In SFC, type 1 is a relatively rare SFC that occurs when type 2 has been triggered. Type 1 sfcs have a few unique traits that set them apart from others, for instance:

1) they are very short in duration and usually last only a few minutes.
2) they may be accompanied by some localized pain or discomfort.
3) their symptoms can range from fever-like responses to more severe respiratory distress such as coughing and difficulty breathing – which could lead to death if not treated quickly!
