What is this rare condition?
You have a rare condition known as linear scleroderma en coupe de sabre. If it is still causing facial changes and hair loss, please see an expert dermatologist. If the condition is no longer active, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon can be consulted.
I normally refer my patients with linear scleroderma/ en coupe de sabre to an opthalmologist for a baseline eye examination. If there are headaches or history of seizures in the past, a neurology referral may also be appropriate.
