Harrison's story, a child with linear morphea
Find out more on linear morphea
Linear scleroderma occurs most commonly in children. The skin is affected in the form of a line, that usually runs along an arm or leg. This usually appears as a long, narrow area of thickened skin, which may look shiny, discoloured or scarred, and the affected area will often feel tight and uncomfortable. In children, linear scleroderma should be carefully monitored, as the normal growth of the limbs can be affected. In more severe cases, the condition impacts upon the tissues just beneath the skin, which may cause scarring (contractures) underneath the skin.
