Abstract

Lichen planus pigmentosus (LPP) is a type of lichenoid dermatitis with superficial dermal melanophages that presents as symmetrical, hyperpigmented macules and patches that are distributed over the forehead, temples, cheeks, and neck. The condition most often occurs in darker skinned individuals and is frequently resistant to treatment. Here we present a patient of Egyptian decent with a lacy reticulated LPP eruption on the face.
