A case of lichen planus erythematosus (Crocker) is presented. The clinical picture of red soft round papules which blanch with pressure is quite distinctive. The dermatitis is self-limited and does not appear to be related to internal disease. It is not known at present whether this dermatitis is etiologically related to the more classical forms of lichen planus.
