Abstract

Lichen planus (LP) is a chronic inflammatory of unknown etiology that affects the skin, tongue, mucous membranes, and nails, and in rare forms, it may affect the scalp (lichen planaopilaris). Lichen planus is a non scarring disease (exception is lichen planaopilaris of the scalp) and the usual sequelae is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. In this case report, I presented a case of lichen planus of a glabrous skin associated with scarring response mimicking discoid lupus erythematosus (which is known to be a scarring dermatosis). This is the first report of lichen planus of glabrous skin healed with a scar like lesions with discoid lupus erythematosus .
