A 26-year-old male patient presented with multiple plaques on the limbs and trunk suggestive of morphoea. He also exhibited multiple, small, atrophic, hypopigmented macules on the left side of the trunk, the histopathology of which was consistent with lichen sclerosus et atrophicus (LSA). The patient developed large ulcers on the left leg and foot, and contractures with flexion deformity of the left ring and little fingers. Radiological examination revealed osteolytic lesions in the phalanges of the left hand. This combination of generalised morphoea with LSA and unusual osteolytic bone changes is uncommon.
