Abstract

A 68-year-old Korean woman presented with a recurrent eruption on her temple. The clinical findings were compatible with a diagnosis of actinic lentigines. However, the biopsy from the lesion revealed histological findings of typical lichen planus. We concluded that the patient had an atypical form of actinic lichen planus that mimicked actinic lentigines. This case is of interest because the condition that is described is rare in elderly and East Asian patients. This is also an atypical form of actinic lichen planus mimicking actinic lentigines.

一位六十八歲高齡婦女在左邊頭側起了復發性斑疹,臨床意見指出,這種情況屬於光線照射下造成的黑斑。可是,對病變問題作出驗查後,認為那是典型扁平苔蘚的組織物。我們把這患者病變造成的日光性黑斑和扁平苔蘚的相似度定論為非典型病例。本病例屬於亞洲高齡婦女當中相當稀有的例子,而且在臨床角度或是病變研究上,相似度高的黑斑和日光性扁平苔癬,這種不尋常的情況也讓我們覺得很有研究價值。
