About 3.5 years ago, Patient Abdoul began suffering pain in his hands and feet, especially while walking. After that, the skin of his limbs gradually became firm and hard. He went to local hospital and was given some oral medicine. 6 months later, the pain in his hands and feet was relieved, but the condition of his skin deteriorated and the hardness of the skin started spread worsen. He was diagnosed with scleroderma.

After one year, the skin of his whole body had became pathologically ‘hard,’  and he began to suffer from mobility issues.

On May 31st 2011, Abdoul was admitted to our PIH to receive Stem Cell Treatment.

Upon admission, the patient presented with general restrictions to movement, especially at his knees. His skin was leathery. He had some peri-orbital swelling. He had difficulty in moving his neck.

Because the skin around his mouth and eyes had also became rather rigid, it was difficult for him to open his eyes and mouth.

His speech was slightly slowed, and slurred.
