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.
