We present the case of an 81-year-old woman with progressive systemic scleroderma. In addition to the typical manifestations of diffuse (truncal) scleroderma, including involvement of the esophagus, lungs and muscles, there were two unusual findings: large, non-sclerosing areas on the trunk simulating the disabling type of circumscribed scleroderma and high titers of anticentromere antibodies, while there were no anti-Scl-70 antibodies. The disease responded to treatment with griseofulvin.
