Abstract

Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic inflammatory dermatosis. It is most commonly found in the anogenital region of Caucasian females. Lichen sclerosus can be very distressing and lesions may result in psychological and functional impairment. Anogenital LS in women also carries a risk of malignant transformation. In both men and women, extragenital LS is an important differential diagnosis to consider in patients presenting with unusual sclerodermoid lesions. Early recognition and treatment of these lesions can lead to both resolution of symptoms and anguish for significantly affected patients. We present a case series of two patients with extragential bullous lichen sclerosus and briefly review LS in this clinical context.

硬化性苔蘚是一種慢性的炎症性皮膚病,最常見於白人女性的肛門生殖器部位。硬化性苔蘚可以對患者造成極大困擾,由此皮膚問題引申至心理及功能性的障礙;而女性患者肛門生殖器處的硬化性苔蘚更存在著癌變的風險。不論男女,如果在外生殖器有著硬皮病樣皮損,硬化性苔蘚是一個必要考慮的重要鑑別診斷,因及早察覺及治療能有效 消除症狀以及患者的苦惱。我們以病例系列形式報告兩名有非生殖器大皰硬化性苔蘚患者的情況,並簡要地回顧此病。
