Indian J Dermatol. 2016 Jan-Feb;61(1):120. doi: 10.4103/0019-5154.174096.


We present a case of lichen sclerosus (LS) involving face and review of the relevant literature since 1970. This article highlights the rarely reported manifestation of LS. Early diagnosis with dermoscopy or confocal microscopy and early treatment might help cure it, and it may have less malignant potential.

Keywords: Confocal microscopy; dermoscopy; face; lichen sclerosus.
