Parry-Romberg syndrome, which is also called progressive facial hemiatrophy, overlaps with a condition known as linear scleroderma “en coup de sabre”. It is a rare, acquired, neurocutaneous syndrome of unknown aetiology. The principle features are atrophy of the soft tissues, and sometimes the bone, on one half of the face or forehead without facial weakness. Sometimes the atrophy extends to the limbs, usually on the same side, and there may be various ophthalmological and neurological…

Clinicians must be aware of PRS to identify the invalidating disorder and a multidisciplinary approach is effective in the management of this disorder.

A 48-year-old woman with a 3-year history of gradually worsening right facial hemiatrophy on a background of scleroderma is described, who was treated with a course of methotrexate and followed up by dermatology, rheumatology and maxillofacial surgery with the aim of reconstructive surgery once her symptoms stabilise.
