Abstract

The authors describe the case of a young woman aged 22 years admitted to our Institute with a diagnosis of Cockayne syndrome. On admission she presented with a photoexposed dermatitis diagnosed, on the basis of clinical and histological aspects, as lichen planus actinicus. Cockayne Syndrome is characterized by precocious aging and other important signs such as dwarfism, mental retardation, photosensitivity, retinal atrophy and progressive neurological deterioration. The syndrome is autosomal recessive with normal infancy and onset of the first signs of deterioration within the first years of life. Lichen planus actinicus is a typical papular dermatitis of the photoexposed parts found in tropical and Mediterranean regions, which may be conditioned by racial factors. This is the first description in literature of a case of lichen planus actinicus in Cockayne syndrome.
