Six patients with either lichen planus or lichen nitidus were treated with itraconazole. Two of four patients with lichen planus experienced complete clearing, and the remainder showed a partial response. Itraconazole, like griseofulvin, may prove to be an alternative treatment worth considering in patients with lichen planus or lichen nitidus who have failed other therapies.
