    Lichen striatus and pityriasis lichenoides chronica in an 11-year-old girl: An etiologic relationship?
    J Pak Med Assoc 2015 Sep;65(9):1011-3
    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.

    Department of Dermatology, Hospital of Busto Arsizio, Italy.
    Pityriasis lichenoides chronica and its acute form, pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta, are skin diseases of unknown origin, that probably represent a hypersensitivity reaction to an infective agent. Pityriasis lichenoides is often a benign disorder but, because of the presence of a clonal T cell population detected both in the chronic and acute forms, some authors have suggested that it may belong to the group of primary cutaneous T cell lymphomas. Although various studies have clearly documented no significant association between pityriasis lichenoides and malignant lymphomas, cases of long-standing pityriasis lichenoides evolving into mycosis fungoides have been described.
