Abstract

Vascular complications due to systemic connective tissue diseases pose a very difficult clinical problem. Due to the nature and location of the lesions, they very often prevent revascularization procedures and the conservative treatment is usually insufficient, which leads to a growth in the degree of ischemia and the need to amputate the limb. The authors clearly show the clinical picture of the most common diseases in this group — systemic lupus erythomatosus, systemic scleroderma, dermatomyositis, mixed connective tissue disease and Sjögren’s syndrome.
