DISCUSSION: Antituberculosis drugs including isoniazid and rifampicin are known to induce lichenoid reactions. It is difficult to distinguish the results from lichen planus. The clinical polymorphism of the rash as well as the patient's drug intake militate in favour of a diagnosis of lichenoid reaction. Widespread ungual involvement, which is extremely rare, warranted early management in order to avert irreversible anonychia. PMID: 32229034 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The optimised TOPICOP scale proved valuable as a PROM in OLP. TCs phobia can be a real consideration in OLP, nonetheless, it does not appear to be an impediment to treatment adherence. PMID: 32189543 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Micali G, Verzì AE, Giuffrida G, Panebianco E, Musumeci ML, Lacarrubba F Abstract Inverse psoriasis represents a clinical variant of psoriasis that is sometimes difficult to diagnose due to its clinical similarity with other skin disorders involving the folds, mainly including mechanical intertrigo, fungal and bacterial infections, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and lichen planus. Dermoscopy represents a useful tool for an enhanced non-invasive diagnosis. The treatment of inverse psoriasis may be challenging and include topical corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, vitamin D a...

CONCLUSIONS: Corticosteroids have been first line for the treatment of OLP. This review found that these drugs, delivered topically as adhesive gels or similar preparations, may be more effective than placebo for reducing the pain of symptomatic OLP; however, with the small number of studies and participants, our confidence in the reliability of this finding is low. The results for clinical response were inconclusive, and we are uncertain about adverse effects. Very low-certainty evidence suggests that calcineurin inhibitors, specifically tacrolimus, may be more effective at resolving pain than corticosteroids, although th...

Authors: Özkur E, Aksu EK, Gürel MS, Savaş S Abstract Introduction: The effectiveness of topical tacrolimus in the treatment of oral and genital lichen planus has been verified in many randomized studies; however, there are only few case reports in treatment of cutaneous lichen planus (CLP). Aim: We sought to compare the safety and efficacy of topical clobetasol propionate and tacrolimus ointment in the treatment of CLP. Material and methods: Retrospective analysis of patient files was performed. We enrolled patients who were diagnosed with CLP and treated with topical tacrolimus 0.1% or topical ...
