AbstractPurpose of the Review: Nowadays, important advances have occurred in our understanding of the pathogenesis of systemic sclerosis (SSc), which is a rare immune-mediated inflammatory disease (IMID) characterized by vascular damage, immune imbalance, and fibrosis. Its etiology remains unknown; nevertheless, both environmental and genetic factors play a major role in the disease. This review will focus on the main advances made in the field of genetics of SSc. Recent Findings: The assessment of how interindividual genetic variability affects disease onset and progression has enhanced our knowledge of disease biology, and this will eventually translate in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools, which is the final goal of personalized medicine. Summary: We will provide an overview of the most relevant achievements in the genetics of SSc, its shared genetics among IMIDs with special attention on drug repurposing, current challenges for the functional characterization of risk variants, and future directions.
