Funny how a diagnosis doesn't mean much till you have it. What is circumscribed scleroderma?

In brief: Morphea

Complex localized condition, skin biopsy can be useful.
There are some suggested treatment if condition severe enough.

In brief: Not as severe

Circumscibed scleroderma is an area of thickened skin when felt and biopsied looks like scleroderma.
It is different then two other and more serious scleroderma diseases which are limited scleroderma and the most severe diffuse scleroderma. Usually, circumscribed scleroderma is not associated with other sysytemic problems amd makes much less severe as compared to the other scleroderma diseases.
