Resumen

CORTES ROS, Odisa; MATOS FIGUEREDO, Francisco; GAHONA KROSS, Trenny  y  VILLACRES MEDINA, Lourdes. Disseminated Genital and Extragenital Lichen Sclerosus et Atrophicus. A Case Report. Medisur [online]. 2013, vol.11, n.6, pp.685-689. ISSN 1727-897X.

Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus is a chronic inflammatory skin disease of unknown causes. It occurs more frequently in women between the fourth and fifth decade of life. Genital areas are a common location for this disorder; extragenital lesions are rare. In order to communicate this uncommon association, a case of a 77-year-old female patient with disseminated genital and extragenital lesions is presented. She was clinically diagnosed with disseminated genital and extragenital lichen sclerosus et atrophicus, which was confirmed by a histological study. Treatment with high-potency topical steroids was prescribed, leading to the improvement of the skin lesions and the disappearance of pruritus.

Palabras clave : lichen sclerosus et atrophicus; case report.
