    Abstract

    A 25-year-old man presented with an isolated trigeminal neuropathy 13 months before developing myalgia and lymphadenopathy. The onset of Raynaud's phenomenon 2 months later suggested a diagnosis of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) and this was confirmed by high serum titres of speckled pattern antinuclear antibody, and antibody to ribonuclear protein.
