Palmoplantar hyperkeratotic lesions: a rare presentation of lichen planus


Palmoplantar lichen planus is a localized and rare subtype of lichen planus (LP) often underdiagnosed. Several morphological types of palmoplantar lesions have been defined in LP.

We emphasize the importance of this rare entity in the differential diagnosis of palmoplantar dermatoses.
