Abstract

Background: Lichen sclerosus is a chronic inflammatory dermatological condition with a predilection for the anogenital area. Case: We describe a case of iatrogenic Cushing syndrome from the administration of high-potency topical steroids for vulvar lichen sclerosus in a 6-year-old girl. Her symptoms resolved after the cessation of topical steroid treatment. Summary and Conclusion: This case brings attention to iatrogenic Cushing syndrome as a potential complication when using high-potency topical corticosteroids in the anogenital region.
