Localized scleroderma and vitiligo only rarely have been reported to occur simultaneously. Here we report a case of a 21 year old man affected with both linear scleroderma of the left upper limb and homolateral segmental vitiligo of the trunk. Since the two diseases appeared during the same period, involved the same side of the body and their progression paralleled, a possible non‐coincidental association between these two diseases is discussed. 
Concurrence of Circumscribed Morphea and Segmental Vitiligo: A Case Report
The case of a 10-year-old Korean girl with morphea and vitiligo and those lesions occurred at the same sites and progressed simultaneously.
Concomitant appearance of morphea and vitiligo in a patient with autoimmune thyroiditis
Although it has not been fully elucidated yet, it is increasingly perceived that autoimmunity plays the central role in the pathogenesis of both morphea and vitiligo.
Unilateral morphea following unilateral vitiligo: a rare occurrence
A case of a 36 years old female with occurrence of unilateral morphea following unilateral vitiligo is presented, of which autoimmune mechanism is common to both.
Co‐occurrence of progressive hemifacial atrophy due to morphea with homolateral segmental vitiligo: A case report
Simultaneous occurrence of progressive hemifacial atrophy due to morphea and homolateral segmental vitiligo, younger onset, rapid progression followed by stabilization and dermatomal distribution
Etiopathogenetic Similarities of Combined Forms of Localized Scleroderma and Vitiligo
The general development mechanism of Vitiligo and several comorbid autoimmune diseases such as localized scleroderma is demonstrated, as well as the key aspect of cross-effect between autoimmune diseases on the molecular level.
Atypical manifestation of idiopathic atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini
A case of idiopathic atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini, which was difficult to diagnose, had no clinical signs of skin atrophy and was diagnosed only as a result of histopathology, is described.
Localized Forms of Scleroderma
Morphea is a fibrosing disorder that resembles scleroderma (systemic sclerosis) microscopically, but typically has a quite different clinical presentation, course and possible pathophysiology.
Coexistence of Parry-Romberg syndrome with homolateral segmental vitiligo
The case of a 46-year-old man affected by both progressive atrophy of the left side of the face and homolateral, segmental vitiligo in the leftside of the trunk and face is reported.
A Case of Segmental Vitiligo with Generalized Morphea Stabilized by Antimalarial Medication
A 10-year-old girl presented with a round, brown to whitish, atrophic plaque on the right side of her back, which she has had for 5 years, and was diagnosed with segmental vitiligo (SV), a case report showing simultaneous occurrence of SV, alopecia areata, psoriasis, and halo nevus.
Case Report: Morphea Profunda Associated with Helicobacter pylori Infection in Sudanese Patient
The cases were diagnosed and confirmed histopathologically as Morphea profunda, considered to be the first two cases of HSD been reported in Sudan.


[Parry-Romberg syndrome associated with homolateral segmental vitiligo].
It is thought that this association between segmentary vitiligo in the left side of the neck and superior part of the hemithorax and an homolateral Parry-Romberg syndrome can be explained by the autoimmune origin of these diseases.
Coincidence of vitiligo, alopecia areata, onychodystrophy, localized scleroderma and lichen planus.
The unique coincidence of five dermatological disorders, which occurred in a 39-year-old patient, did not reveal a common underlying cause and it is hoped this report will stimulate the recognition of other cases and thus aid in determining whether the coincidence of these disorders is a true association of diseases with acommon underlying factor or a rare abnormality.
Coexistence of Vitiligo and Morphea: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
A patient with both vitiligo and morphea is described. These skin diseases rarely appear concurrently in the same patient, despite the fact that both are thought to have an autoimmune etiology.
[Linear scleroderma in children (apropos of 27 cases)].
The skin lesions associated with linear morphoea show that the other forms of scleroderma--i.e. plaque Morphoea, erythematous atrophic or dyschromic plaques and guttate sclerodma--belong to the same family.
Immunologic abnormalities in linear scleroderma.
A 21-year-old woman who developed linear scleroderma in the right leg during pregnancy showed a pruritic, papuloerythematous eruption, in a similar way to the case reported by Siegel, with some findings that are important to communicate.
Localized scleroderma/morphea
This work states that Raynaud’s phenomenon and systemic organ involvement are conspicuously absent in localized scleroderma, and it is imperative to confirm the diagnosis through microscopic pathology to establish the nature of the tissue changes of the disease.

Linear scleroderma: a response to neurologic injury? Report and literature review.
A review of the literature uncovered considerable evidence for underlying abnormalities of the spine and spinal cord in many patents with linear scleroderma and a paucity of immunologic abnormalities characteristic of progressive systemic sclerosis.
