NOBREGA, Monisa Martins et al. Lichen sclerosus associated with localized scleroderma: dermoscopy contribution. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.4, pp.534-536. ISSN 0365-0596.

Lichen sclerosus is an uncommon inflammatory dermatosis with preferential involvement of the urogenital region. The extragenital involvement is uncommon and is characterized by small rounded macules or papules, pearly white in color. The coexistence of lichen sclerosus and scleroderma plaques in most cases with extragenital location has been reported in the literature. We report a case of lichen sclerosus associated with scleroderma in children, highlighting the importance of dermoscopy in diagnosis.

Keywords : Dermoscopy; Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus; Scleroderma localized.
