Manifestations of 50 Years of Linear Morphea

A 55 year old female, diagnosed with scleroderma at 5 years of age, presented with gradual development of skin thickening and muscle atrophy in her right upper extremity that slowly progressed to involve her trunk (Figure 1). In addition, she had arthralgias, joint stiffness, Raynaud phenomenon, xerostomia, microstomia, dysphagia and dyspnea. Linear Scleroderma or Linear Morphea is a localized form of scleroderma that begins during childhood with plaques arranged in a unilateral dermatomal linear pattern which commonly involve the face and extremities.
