Generalized morphea is a disease characterized by wide-spread sclerosis of the skin. A 39-year-old man presented with history of multiple pigmented and bound-down plaques on the body along with mucosal involvement. Dermatological examination showed multiple indurated and sclerosed plaques with follicular plugging in few of them and gross thickened eroded and glazed tongue. The constellation of these findings with histopathological correlation led us to diagnosis of this spectrum of cutaneous involvement. The coexistence of localized morphea with lichen sclerosis et atrophicus has been reported earlier but existence of these entities with submucosal fibrosis in a same patient is documented here and is the first of its kind.
