Solitary morphoea profunda is an unusual form of scleroderma, characterized by marked fibrosis, hyalinization of collagen fibres, and inflammatory cell infiltration in the deep dermal and subcutaneous layers. We describe a 58-year-old man showing solitary morphoea profunda. Plate-like osteoma cutis, with transepidermal elimination of bony material, within the morphoea profunda, was present.
