Unilateral limited scleroderma-like changes following formation of an arteriovenous fistula. The arteriovenous fistula for haemodialysis had been formed on the same arm 2 years previously. Tissue hypoxia is believed to be a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of scleroderma, and this case demonstrates scleroderma-like changes in the setting of limb ischaemia. PubMed. Australas J Dermatol. 2007 Feb;48(1):37-9. (Also see: Renal Involvement and Diseases Similar to Scleroderma: Scleroderma-Like)
