Core Tip Systemic sclerosis is an autoimmune disease characterized by vasculopathy, fibrosis of the skin, and internal organ dysfunction. Gastrointestinal involvement is the most common complication of internal organs, impacting up to 90% of patients. This involvement can affect any region of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus, with a predominance of alterations being observed in the upper digestive tract. The gastrointestinal involvement primarily involves the esophagus, small intestine and rectum. The severity of gastrointestinal involvement affects quality of life and is a marker of worse prognosis and mortality in these patients. In this review, the current findings regarding gastrointestinal involvement by this entity are described.
