Morphea (linear, en coup de sabre) This term refers to linear morphea occurring on the forehead and scalp. Rarely, the central nervous system is affected. Neurologic manifestations include seizures, focal neurologic deficits, and movement disorders. MRI in affected children shows some areas of T2 hyperintensity and evidence of focal tissue atrophy in the brain.
