Abstract

Thera are several types of morphea with different levels of connective tissue involvement and morphological manifestations.

In this mini review, it was pointed out the most important morphological and clinical aspects of localized scleroderma in the oral cavity. The own case supports the scientific information and is described with details. The morphea of mucous membrane which was clinically suspected, was proved by histopathological examination of the sample.

The unusual location of the local findings posed a diagnostic challenge. The case history should be significant due to the low number of studies. The special attention should be taken to match the clinical with pathomorphological picture  in localized scleroderma diagnosis and treatment when the involvement of skin and oral mucosa is.
