Abstract

Ulcerative lichen planus of the feet is a rare variant of lichen planus characterized by the constellation of a chronic bullous and ulcerative eruption limited to the feet, atrophy of involved skin and nails, and cicatricial alopecia. Only split-thickness skin grafting has hereto been documented to be effective. We here report a case with ulcerative lichen planus of the feet successfully treated with medium-dose ultraviolet A-1.
