Abstract

Linear scleroderma en coup de sabre (LSCS) is the most common form of morphea on the scalp and its trichoscopic features have not been described yet. We report 2 adult women with LSCS with distinct dermoscopic findings. They both had an atrophic well-defined linear patch of alopecia on the frontotemporal scalp. Dermoscopy showed loss of follicular openings on a whitish skin surface; scattered black dots, broken hairs, and pili torti; and short thick linear and branching tortuous vessels on the periphery of the lesion. Pathology confirmed the diagnosis of LSCS in the 2 cases. This description of dermoscopic features in LSCS on the scalp may help in the early diagnosis of the disease.
