Abstract

Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus (LSA) rarely coexists with morphea, especially when bullae occur in lesions of morphea. Here we report the case of a 15-year-old girl with this condition, who also fulfilled four out of 11 diagnostic criteria for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Tissue biopsy of different skin lesions showed LSA in the regions of bullous morphea, that has rarely been reported in the literature.
