A Case of Morphea Following Intra-articular Injection
Download Full Text
Morphea is an inflammatory and sclerosing skin disorder that is brought on by immune dysregulation, external factors, and genetic predisposition. It is benign, self-limiting, and typically confined to the skin and underlying tissues, without serious risk for morbidity. It is important to distinguish localized and limited morphea and scleroderma from a systemic presentation, as management and treatment as well as other risk factors and organ involvement vary greatly in systemic disease.
