The case of a 20-year old girl who had morphea with bullous lesions is reported. Two bullae appeared on an indurated patch of morphea on the right side of the trunk. A half-moon-shaped lesion was localized along the superior border of the patch and the other followed the anterior border and extended into the patch. Both contained a hemorrhagic fluid. The bullae spontaneously regressed in a few months without therapy. We emphasize the very rare occurrence of hemorrhagic bullous lesions as a complication of morphea.
