Photodistributed hypertrophic lichen planus in association with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome: a distinct entity.
The cutaneous manifestations of human immunodeficiency virus infection include papulosquamous diseases, viral and fungal infections, and neoplastic disorders. Eczematous photosensitivity disorders have been reported in patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus. We describe a patient with advanced acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who developed photodistributed hypertrophic lichen planus. We believe this is a distinct cutaneous manifestation of human immunodeficiency virus infection.
