Localized scleroderma (LS) is a disease that is characterized by the appearance of inflammatory, sclerotic and/or atrophic changes in the affected areas of the skin and underlying tissues. In ICD-10, the disease is considered under category L94 "Other localized connective tissue changes". This paper presents the classification of the disease developed for federal guideline 2015, for management of patients with localized scleroderma. Also, a brief description of the various methods of diagnosis of the disease, including laboratory tests, instrumental methods and disease severity scale are presented.
Keywords: scleroderma, diagnostics, dermatology.
