Abstract
Full text PDF
Lichen sclerosus (LS) and morphea are two infrequent inflammatory dermatoses of unknown etiology. The overlapping clinical and histopathologic features of both LS and morphea in the same patient have led some to speculate that they may have a common pathologic link or that both conditions represent the same disease spectrum. The coexistence of LS and morphea in the same lesion is a rare finding. We present a patient, who was diagnosed with what appeared clinically to be extragenital LS, but with histopathologic features of both LS and morphea.
