Description:This patient presented with a case of lichen planus disseminated over his entire body, but primarily about his torso.
As a skin disease or dermatitis, lichen planus appears as small, flattened erythematous, i.e., inflamed bumps, which may manifest themselves anywhere on the body. The cause of this malady is unknown, but stress-related factors, autoimmune origins, or possible viral pathogenic influences such as hepatitis C, are all etiologic suspects.
