Morphea, also known as localized scleroderma, is a disorder characterized by excessive collagen deposition leading to thickening of the dermis, subcutaneous tissues, or both.
Morphea is classified into plaque, generalized, linear, and deep subtypes according to the clinical presentation and depth of tissue involvement.
Treatment and Management:
Plaque-type morphea often undergoes gradual spontaneous resolution over a 3- to 5-year period. Treatment of active lesions with superpotent topical or intralesional corticosteroids may help reduce inflammation and prevent progression.
