Lichen Planus Zoniformis. Presented by Dr. Saenz.  A white woman presented bandlike lesions of lichen planus on both legs and arms. The condition had lasted for three years. There was considerable pigmentation. Pruritus was slight.

DISCUSSION  Dr. Pardo-Castello: The papules in this case remind me of those in cases presented before this association under the name of epidermodysplasia verruciformis of Lewandowsky. Of course, I agree with the diagnosis of lichen planus zoniformis, but I wonder if the cases of epidermodysplasia have not some relation with atypical lichen planus, which they really resemble closely. In this case, were it not for some typical papules of lichen planus and their distribution it would be difficult to make the differential diagnosis.Dr. Saenz: I cannot agree with Dr. Pardo-Castello. The pathologic changes and evolution of epidermodysplasia verruciformis are entirely different from those of lichen planus.
