We report a 21-year-old man with linear scleroderma with muscle calcification revealed by a computed tomographic (CT) scan. Levels of serum calcium and phosphorus were normal. This is the first report of localized scleroderma with muscle calcification. Muscle involvement may cause contracture or functional abnormalities of the extremities. Therefore, CT scans may be useful in evaluating muscle involvement in patients with localized scleroderma.
