Because the cause of morphea is unknown, it's difficult to pinpoint who may be at a higher risk. However, there are several known factors that may increase your risk of developing morphea, including:

  • Sex. Morphea is more common in women than in men.
  • Race. Whites and people of Asian descent are more likely to develop morphea than are blacks.
