Abstract

Musculoskeletal disorders may be the primary manifestations of scieroderma. The case is reported ofa patient admitted for an evaluation of severe knee flexion contractures who was diagnosed as having scieroderma but lacked the typical presenting features of the disease. Radiographic, serological, and histological support for this diagnosis are presented. Scleroderma should be considered in the diagnostic evaluation of joint contractures.
