“…Death usually ensues unless corticosteroid therapy is prescribed (Horsfield & Yardley 1965). It is related to generalized sclerema in that it shows the same fundamental lesion and perhaps shares some of the same etiologic mechanisms even though it strikes a different patient population and carries a different prognosis (Gray 1926).…”
