OCAMPO, Dolores  and  GONZALEZ, Verónica. Vulvar lichen sclerosus in a girl with Turner syndrome. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2014, vol.112, n.4, pp.e160-e162. ISSN 0325-0075.

Dermatological complications in Turner syndrome are infrequent but occasionally cause significant morbidity. Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous affection characterized by pruritus in the anogenital area. It is yet not clear its pathophysiology but it's linked with genetic factors and autoimmunity. This is a case report of a girl with Turner syndrome with growth hormone treatment that started with vulvar pruritus and was diagnosed as lichen sclerosus.
