Abstract

A 5-year-old girl presented with a 2-month history of an indurated hypopigmented, atrophic plaque of biopsy-documented morphea over the right hip area. Previous treatment with 0,1% betamethasone valerate cream twice a day for 3 months failed to improve the lesion. She was treated with calcipotriol ointment twice daily, with nightly occlusion to the plaque for 9 months, and this resulted in resolution. No side effects were noted.
