Scleroderma has been associated with exposure to many substances in the past ranging from vinyl chloride to silicon dioxide. In recent years there have been a number of case reports linking modern chemotherapy agents, such as the taxanes to the development of scleroderma like changes. We present a further case of scleroderma in association with chemotherapy but question the role of some of the agents previously implicated. A brief review of the current literature is included.
