Silicone breast implants and connective tissue disease: no association. Any claims that remain regarding an association between cosmetic breast implants and CTDs are not supported by the scientific literature but rather are a residual byproduct of the unprecedented large-scale product liability litigation in the USA. Lipworth L. Semin Immunopathol. 2011 Jan 10. (Also see: Causes of Scleroderma: Artificial Joints and Breast Implants and Connective Tissue Disease)
