Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Periocular linear scleroderma coup de sabre has been seen in association with blepharoptosis. The authors describe a 4-year-old girl who developed left blepharoptosis simultaneously with a remote scalp lesion consistent with linear scleroderma coup de sabre. This case is unique in that the scalp lesion was distant from the affected eye.
