We report a case of scleroderma with 'scleroderma renal crisis', (arterial hypertension, high plasma renin levels and impaired renal function) associated with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome which includes neurological, ophthalmic and cutaneous symptoms. This case is interesting not only because both syndromes are rare and have not previously been reported in association, but because it suggests a pathogenetic relationship between two autoimmune diseases.
