• Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN) may be difficult to differentiate clinically from psoriasis. We report four cases of ILVEN that confirm the observation that the analysis of epidermal proteins by sodium lauryl sulfate—polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SLS-PAGE) discloses a pattern different from that seen in psoriasis. We have also found, however, that the SLS-PAGE epidermal protein pattern is not identical in each case of ILVEN.
