Abstract

Morphoea, also known as localized scleroderma, is a disorder characterized by excessive collagen deposition leading to thickening of the dermis and/or subcutaneous tissues. Intravenous IgG therapy has induced improvement in some fibrotic conditions. The primary indication for subcutaneous IgG (SCIG) is in primary immunodeficiency disorders as replacement therapy; however, recently there has been considerable interest in SCIG as an immunomodulatory agent. We report an 11‐year‐old girl with deep morphoea who was successfully treated with SCIG.
