A twenty-nine-year-old woman who had been taking lithium carbonate for seven years experienced ulcerated lesions of the vaginal mucosa and acneiform eruption on both thighs. Histopathologic appearance of the skin biopsy specimens was consistent with lichenoid cutaneous changes. The cutaneous lesions cleared when use of the drug was discontinued.
