Keratosis Lichenoides Chronica: Possible Variant of Lichen Planus

Keratosis Lichenoides Chronica: Possible Variant of Lichen Planus Abstract • A chronic, asymptomatic, keratotic, papular eruption, present for 15 years and resistant to all modes of therapy, was observed in a 49-year-old woman. Many of the papules formed a reticulated configuration over the arms and legs. This case resembles several others that have been described in the literature under different names, ie, keratosis lichenoides chronica, porokeratosis striata, and lichen verrucosus et reticularis. It is likely that all of these names refer to the same condition, constituting a definite clinical entity, which, on the basis of histological study, may represent a variant of lichen planus.

Abstract

Abstract • A chronic, asymptomatic, keratotic, papular eruption, present for 15 years and resistant to all modes of therapy, was observed in a 49-year-old woman. Many of the papules formed a reticulated configuration over the arms and legs. This case resembles several others that have been described in the literature under different names, ie, keratosis lichenoides chronica, porokeratosis striata, and lichen verrucosus et reticularis. It is likely that all of these names refer to the same condition, constituting a definite clinical entity, which, on the basis of histological study, may represent a variant of lichen planus.
