Picture of Morphea (Late Stage)
Morphea is localized scleroderma confined to the skin. It most commonly affects the trunk but also occurs on the face and extremities. The four clinical variants include plaque-type morphea, generalized morphea, linear morphea (en coupe de sabre), and pansclerotic morphea of children (morphea profunda).
This is a patient with late stage morphea on the right leg presenting as linear depressed yellowish to white hard plaques with erythematous margins.
