Inflammatory morphea in the context of Raynaud phenomenon. Even in the absence of initial symptoms to support systemic disease, patients presenting with morphea in the setting of Raynaud phenomenon or anti-centromere antibodies deserve close surveillance for the possibility of CREST syndrome and systemic sclerosis. Naheed Abbasi MD MPH. Dermatology Online Journal. October 2008. (Also see: Raynaud's and Morphea)
