Abstract

Linear scleroderma is an unusual disorder characterized by linear streaks of fibrotic skin involvement, which can lead to severe limb deformities and contractures. The authors present a case of severe wrist contracture in a child with linear scleroderma treated by release of the contracture with coverage of the exposed carpus with an abductor digiti minimi flap and skin graft. Reports of successful treatment of extremity deformities are rare. At 1 year this correction appears to have been successful.
