Bad Marks: An 8-Question Morphea Quiz


Disfiguring lesions are the telltale sign of this skin condition. Take this quick quiz to test your knowledge.

Over the course of a year, 3 girls presented with nearly identical complaints-mild alopecia and disfiguring forehead lesions that looked like scars from a cut or slash. After complete physicals and personal and family histories, the diagnosis was made: linear morphea.

Morphea, a skin condition that causes painless, discolored patches on the skin, is a form of scleroderma, an autoimmune disease. Linear morphea is characterized by a line of thickened skin that can affect underlying bones and muscles. The diagnosis of morphea usually is made by clinical examination and may be confirmed with blood tests or skin biopsies.
