Lichen Nitidus of the Eyelids
Lichen nitidus is a rare, idiopathic inflammatory condition that typically presents as small, flat-topped papules on the chest, abdomen, and upper extremities. The lesions are benign and often asymptomatic and self-resolve. The pediatric population is most often affected. The authors report a case of lichen nitidus presenting as isolated bilateral eyelid lesions increasing in number for several years. Eventual excision and antibiotic/steroid ointment prompted regression.
