Histologic sections of the hematoxylin-eosin–stained biopsy specimen showed an acanthotic epidermis with overlying orthokeratosis and parakeratosis. A dense lichenoid infiltrate was associated with epidermal basal vacuolar changes and scattered apoptotic keratinocytes. There was also a superficial and deep perivascular and perieccrine lymphohistiocytic infiltrate. A periodic acid–Schiff stain failed to reveal fungal organisms. The combined histologic findings and clinical appearance was that of lichen striatus.
