Abstract: The relationship between diffuse connective tissue disease (DCTD) and silicone implant (SI) remains obscure. Two cases with rheumatic symptoms after receiving SI have been reported. One patient had migratory arthritis and the presence of rheumatoid factor, antinuclear antibodies (ANA), with good response with non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs. The other patient had Raynaud phenomenon, hands edema, proximal muscle weakness, dispnea, presence of ANA and anti-RNP, with the diagnosis for mixed connective tissue disease and good response to corticosteroid. The exact relationship between SI and DCTD is not well established, especially with regard to a possible causal association.
