Lichen planus is a common inflammatory skin disease, it usually affects the trunk, flexural surfaces, and oral or genital mucosa. Eye lids are rarely affected with few reported cases. Here we present a 67-year-old woman who has itchy skin eruption confined to the eyelids for 3 months. No history of using cosmetics. No personal or family history of atopy. No history of joint pain, weakness, or fatigue. On examination, the patient had violaceous thin scaly plaques over both eye lids. Oral mucosa is free and no other lesions on the body.

Longitudinal myelitis secondary to an acute flare of systemic lupus erythematosus has been reported in the literature. There have been few published cases of complete functional recovery in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus–related longitudinal myelitis (systemic lupus erythematosus–related longitudinal myelitis). Of those cases, none have described in detail the rehabilitation course of treatment. In the current case, intensive rehabilitation was coupled with aggressive pharmaceutical treatment resulting in almost full functional recovery. A 23-yr-old African American woman with a history of systemic ...

Authors: Strazzulla LC, Avila L, Lo Sicco K, Shapiro J Abstract Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is a variant of lichen planus that affects the scalp causing scarring hair loss. Patients also frequently experience symptoms of scalp itch, pain, and burning. To date, there are no long-term remittive nor curative therapies available. Low-dose naltrexone has anti-inflammatory properties and has recently been described in the context of treating autoimmune conditions. This retrospective medical record review describes four LPP patients treated with low-dose (3 milligrams per day) naltrexone. This medication provided benefit in...

Inflammatory vulvar dermatoses affect many women, but are likely underdiagnosed due to embarrassment and reluctance to visit a health care provider. Although itch and pain are common presenting symptoms, the physical examination can help distinguish between different disease entities. Because many women’s health providers have minimal training in the categorization and management of dermatologic disease, definitive diagnosis and management can be difficult. Herein, strategies for diagnosing vulvar lichen sclerosus, lichen planus, contact dermatitis, lichen simplex chronicus, and psoriasis are discussed along with bas...
