Morphea, which is also known as localized scleroderma, comprises a group of distinct conditions that causes sclerosis of the skin and subcutaneous tissues but they do not affect internal organs with some exceptions. Here, we describe a case of morphea presenting with a zosteriform distribution that does not seem to be a linear morphea following Blaschko’s lines.
