“…Vineet et al [13] reported another case of unilateral Blaschkoid LPP in a 48-year-old male patient with lesions lateralizing to the right side of his body that followed the lines of Blaschko in a linear and zosteriform pattern. Polat et al [14] reported another case of unilateral Blaschkoid LPP in a female patient who had been using levothyroxine and levetiracetam for 8 years to manage hypothyroidism and epilepsy. In contrast, our patient had no history of systemic disease and did not use any medication.…”

The linear pattern of lichen planus pigmentosus is rarely encountered but may be either blaschkoid or dermatomal in form . This unique presentation may contribute to better understanding of the etiology, as the blaschkoid distribution may reflect the underlying cutaneous mosaicism that renders those cells more susceptible to an insult that results in lichen planus pigmentosus …”
