Does anyone have CREST along with Morphea?

Recently I have read a medical article about SS and morphea overlap in which the author says that this overlap is not a rare case as it was taught. According to the author it is more frequent in patients which have negative lab work.

Here is the link of an article:- Systemic Scleroderma associated with Morphea

Hello Erica

Let me just support the article you have highlighted. I have both systemic and morphea and my blood work is negative and always has been. Weird eh?

Take care.
