Lichen striatus is a inflammatory disorder characterized by distinctive linear distribution of papules. The lesion presents commonly on the extremities and facial involvement has been reported as being less frequent. Only four cases have been reported in the Korean literatures. A 3-year-old patient presented with linear erythematous papules on the nose. Histopathologically, the lesion showed spongiosis in the epidermis and lymphocytic infiltration around the hair follicles and eccrine glands in the dermis. We report a case of lichen striatus with facial involvement.
Key Words: Lichen striatus, Face
