Morphea is an autoimmune connective tissue disease of unrevealed etiology. It is associated with skin changes in the form of thickening along with deposition of excess of collagen in the affected lesion. Pain associated with morphea is usually a rare finding and is refractory to conventional analgesics. Hence, here we discuss a case of morphea with debilitating pain, that was successfully managed with stellate ganglion block.
