superficial morphea

Friday 16 November 2012

In superficial morphea, the collagen deposition and inflammation are restricted to the superficial dermis.

A mild lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate surrounds eccrine ducts in the superficial dermis.

There are no features of lichen sclerosus et atrophicus.

Dermal elastic fibers are not appreciably diminished, but there is some loss of CD34-positive spindle cells.
