Abstract

Lichen sclerosus is a chronic, debilitating, and recurring disease that is most commonly seen affecting the anogenital region. Extragenital locations of lichen sclerosus has been well documented, frequently seen in the shoulders, neck, trunk, breasts, and arms, however, infrequently of the face. Specifically, extragenital lichen sclerosus has been reported in several cases to be involving the infraorbital region, but to our knowledge it has never been found affecting the adnexa of the eye. To our understanding, this is the first documented report of a patient with extragenital lichen sclerosus of an eyelid.
