One hundred and twenty-five patients with systemic sclerosis were surveyed for neurological manifestations in a prospective study. Seven (5.6%) were found to have a defined neurologic lesion: 4 with carpal tunnel syndrome and one each with trigeminal neuralgia, mononeuritis multiplex and peripheral neuropathy. Neurological involvement occurs but is uncommon in this connective tissue disorder.
