Abstract


Mixed connective-tissue disease (MCTD) is an autoimmune disorder with overlapping clinical features of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), scleroderma, and myositis, with the presence of antiU1-ribonucleoprotein (RNP) antibody. We report a case of a male patient with unusual clinical presentation of the condition.
