Asymptomatic erythematous patches are mostly congenital vascular malformations that may be a part of syndromes like Sturge-Weber or Klippel Trenaunay syndrome. Acquired erythematous lesions are difficult to diagnose with differentials ranging from acquired port-wine stain to early morphea. We are reporting a case of a middle aged woman suffering from early morphea hardly distinguishable from Port-wine stain that was further complicated by her acquiring lymphatic filariasis in the same leg.
