To the Editor:  I was interested in an article by Schreiber, Shapiro, and Sampsel in the December issue of the Archives. In it they describe a plaque of localized scleroderma which developed pseudosarcomatous fasciitis after trauma.We have seen a case in which morphea was simulated, although not present. In our case erythematous, edematous peau d'orange plaques and smooth pink to darker red finger-shaped lesions have the specific pathology of this unusual phenomena rather than morphea.Perhaps Schreiber et al have elucidated a clinical facet of this puzzling disorder. Could morphealike lesions be part of the early course of this disease?
