abstract

  • A 49 year old black female patient with progressive systemic sclerosis (scleroderma), multiple organ system involvement, uremia and malignant hypertension, was treated with maintenance hemodialysis and bilateral nephrectomy. Bilateral nephrectomy controlled refractory hypertension and appeared to alter the natural course of systemic sclerosis.
