The differential for linear papular lesions includes inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN), blaschkitis, or linear morphea. ILVEN is a hamartoma that usually is congenital or presents in early childhood; presents with linear or whorled, hyperkeratotic papules and plaque in similar linear "line of Blaschko" patterns; and represents cutaneous mosaicism.

Clinically, it can be classified into superficial, nodular, pigmented, ulcerating, cystic, and sclerosing patterns.[1] Histological variants are nodular, micronodular, fibroepithelial, adenoid, morphea form, and infiltrative types.[3] An exceptional appearance as a polypoid lesion is very rare.
Eosinophilic fasciitis/generalized morphea overlap.
discovered that the glycosaminoglycans found in atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini were different from the ones observed in morphea (3).
They often have antibodies to Scl-70.2 SSc mimics many other skin conditions like generalized morphea, scleromyxedema, scleredema of Buschke, primary systemic amyloidosis, chronic graft-versus-host disease, eosinophilic fasciitis etc.3 The criteria for diagnosis of systemic sclerosis have been established by the subcommittee for scleroderma criteria of American Rheumatism Association (now called the American College of Rheumatology).4
* Morphea represents a thickening of collagen bundles in the skin.
In scleroderma, the most frequent cutaneous malignancy is squamous cell carcinoma, in patients with systemic disease or particularly in cases of pansclerotic morphea, when SCC presents recurrences and resistance to treatment.

Morphea, also known as localized scleroderma (LoS), is a distinctive inflammatory disease involving the skin and the subcutaneous tissue, characterized by excessive collagen deposition that ultimately leads to fibrosis.
