What Is Linear Scleroderma?

Subtypes of Localized Scleroderma: Linear

As suggested by its name, the linear type of scleroderma has a single line or band of thickened and/or abnormally colored skin. Usually, the line runs down an arm or leg, but in some people, it runs down the forehead. People sometimes use the French term "en coup de sabre," or "sword stroke," to describe this highly visible line.
