Abstract

Cardiac involvement in systemic sclerosis (SSc) is rare but leads to poor short-term prognosis. Evidence regarding heart transplantation (HT) is scarce and is based on experience with isolated cases. We present this case with the aim of analysing the characteristics of a patient with SS who has undergone a successful transplant.

Keywords:
Systemic sclerosis
Cardiac transplant
Scleroderma
Heart disease

Presentamos este caso con el objetivo de analizar las características de un paciente con esclerosis sistémica sometido a un trasplante exitoso.
