Widerspread Hypopigmentation Secondary to the Prolonged use of Highly Potent Steroidal Cream in Lichen Planus.
AbstractA 24-year old Nigerian woman presented at our clinic with extensive hypopigmentation following the use of very potent steroidal cream in widerspread lichen planus. She was treated with intramuscular injection of triamcinolone acetonide and the associated secondary bacterial infection was treated with an antibiotic. The cosmetic result at 18 months follow-up was impressive.
