Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder first described in 1887 by Hallopeau(1). It typically affects the anogenital area and presents clinically with ivory-white atrophic patches or plaques with associated telangiectasia and purpura(2). Only 4 cases of peristomal LS have been reported in the literature, and it has been considered to be a variant of extragenital LS(3-5).
