Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis are all connective tissue disorders. A connective tissue disorder one that affects the connective tissues of the body. The connective tissues are the structural portions of our body that essentially hold the cells of the body together. These tissues form a framework, or matrix, for the body. In patients with connective tissue diseases, it is common for the connective tissue to become injured by inflammation.
Many connective tissue diseases feature abnormal immune system activity with inflammation in tissues as a result of the body’s immune system attacking its own tissues. This is called an autoimmune disorder.
