Se below: Morphea is localized thickening scarring of the skin. It is commoner on the body and can affect both children and adults. It begins with red thickened areas that then become hypopigmented and turn into thickened scar tissue. It can be local or generalized and the skin biopsy looks like scleroderma. Physical therapy to maintain function is important and if progressive can require immunosuppression.
