A case of localized scleroderma (morphea) in a patient with a unilateral silicone breast implant is reported. The clinical lesions showed cupuliform depressed plaques with scleroatrophia of the dermis on histology. Extensive fibrosis was present. Electron microscopy and spectrophotometry showed the presence of silicone in the lesion. It was concluded that this localized scleroderma could be related to silicone leaking into the breast tissue.
