Abstract

Although a few reports have noted the concurrent presentation of morphea and vitiligo at distinctly separate sites in the same patient, it is extremely rare that these two conditions occur at the same sites in a patient. We 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. An autoimmunity and a cutaneous mosaicism was considered to be involved in such an unique presentation as the pathogenesis is concerned.
