What should be used as tools in women at risk of autoimmune disease? Because of the multifactorial nature of most autoimmune disorders, women seeking breast implants should be screened for the known triggers for developing CTD. Until we have better diagnostic tools, the women at risk of autoimmune diseases should not be considered for implantation of silicone devices for cosmetic purposes. PubMed. Acta Dermatovenerol Croat. 2007;15(1):45. (Also see: Causes of Scleroderma: Breast Implants)
