abstract

  • The first report of spinous follicular lichen nitidus with perifollicular granulomas was by Madhok and Winkelmann in 1988. Since this report, a few cases of follicular or periappendageal lichen nitidus have been described, in a more localized form or without perifollicular granulomas. We describe a 5-year-old girl with the rare generalized spinous follicular variant of lichen nitidus with perifollicular granulomas.
