Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A 53-year-old woman initially had lichen planus primarily on her extremities. Approximately 1 year later, lesions consistent with erythema dyschromicum perstans were observed. Both diseases cleared with griseofulvin therapy but returned after discontinuation of the drug. Retreatment with griseofulvin again resulted in clearing.
