According to the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), localized juvenile scleroderma is a much more common and less severe generalized form of the disease. In localized scleroderma, the joints and underlying tissues can be affected which can result in a failure to grow properly. Localized scleroderma can also display in two different forms: morphea and linear.
