Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Our objective was to describe the spectrum of MRI features in patients with deep and generalized morphea. CONCLUSION. Imaging features of morphea are not specific and usually overlap with those of other disorders involving the skin, fascia, and musculature, such as some types of fasciitis, myositis, and so forth. Nevertheless, the imaging features of morphea reflect pathomorphologic changes of this rare disorder and enable a complete assessment of the disease extent, including depth of infiltration and disease activity.
