Abstract

There is increasing evidence to demonstrate that Parry-Romberg syndrome and linear scleroderma en coup de sabre are both forms of linear scleroderma, representing localized autoimmune conditions affecting the skin, eyes, brain, and surrounding tissues. We present a case highlighting the clinical presentation of a 12-year-old boy with focal seizures and physical examination findings of facial atrophy and hair loss. This article reviews the literature related to the presentation, epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Parry-Romberg syndrome and linear scleroderma en coupe de sabre with focus on the significant correlation with neurologic disease, particularly seizures.
