The en coup de sabre variant of linear scleroderma typically occurs in children. We report a unique case of adult-onset en coup de sabre scleroderma in a patient with linear localized scleroderma profunda. The patient was treated with oral steroids and oral methotrexate improving her cutaneous disease. This case highlights the importance of a thorough cutaneous examination as this adult patient developed an entity traditionally believed to occur in childhood.
