In brief: Different areas
Collagen vascular diseases or multi-system diseases are just that.
They are a group of diseases characterized by autoimmune aberrations. Varied organ systems can be involved - skin, joints or any internal organs - heart, kidneys, blood or nervous system. The way a disease presents itself depends on which areas are involved. See you doctor or rheumatologist.
