Two patients with combinedbilian/ cirrhosis and scleroderma are described. Both patients also presented features of the CRST syndrome, namely Raynaud's phenomenon, and telangiectasiae. Nine previously reported cases are reviewed and the clinical data suggest that a common underlying immunologic basis may account for both clinical conditions.
