The case of a 59-year-old woman with lichenoid papular lesions confluent in plaques arranged in a band-like way extending from the posterior aspect of left thigh to the medial perimalleolar region, following Blaschko's lines, is reported. A biopsy specimen showed hyperkeratosis with parakeratosis, focal spongiosis and a perivascular lymphohistiocytic infiltrate in the upper dermis. Lichen striatus is a fairly uncommon dermatosis which generally affects children; when it occurs in an adult, it tends to be more inflammatory and it can assume a relapsing course.
