Abstract

Lichen planus pigmentosus-inversus is a rare variant of lichen planus. So far, only 24 cases from 12 reports have been documented in the published work. The prominent characteristics of the disease are dark-brown macules and patches confined to the non-sun exposed, flexural areas and skin folds with lichenoid pathological changes and prominent melanin incontinence. We report three female Chinese patients with typical clinical and pathological manifestations and a miniature review of the published work.
