Lichen planus is an inflammatory skin condition with characteristic histopathological findings that has many clinical variants. Recently, there have been 25 cases reported in the literature of lichen planus pigmentosus (LPPi) that preceded the development of frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA), which is a variant of lichen planopilaris (LPP). We review the literature regarding LPPi, LPP, and FFA and present a case of a 40-year-old African American woman with LPPi and LPP.
