    Department of Pathology, Turgut Ozal University, Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.
    Lichen striatusis a rare linear papulardermatosis that primarily occurs in children. The lesions have a linear distribution following Blaschko's lines. Pityriasis lichenoides is an uncommon benign skin disorder with two major variants: acute and chronic.Herein, we report the case of an 11-year-old girl with concurrent pityriasisli chenoides chronica and lichen striatus, a previously unreported association. Although it remains unclear whether there is an aetiological relationship between the two diseases or whether their coexistence was coincidental in our patient, but some common mechanisms may be involved in the two diseases.
