We described a girl with scleroderma that came to the Hospital Daniel Bracamonte, in Potosí, and it is included in the group of the colagenosis. This rare entity belongs to the autoimmune diseases. The main characteristics are hardening of the skin and thinner of the cutaneous layer. The systemic sclerosis affects not only the immune system but also the wall of the arterial vessels and connective tissue.

Keywords : colagen disease; scleroderma; systemic scleroderma; systemic progressive scleroderma-systemic familiar scleroderma.
