ACHENBACH, RE; BOYTENKO, S  and  SANCHEZ, GF. Morphea lichen sclerosus et atrophicus variant associated to vitiligo. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2014, vol.95, n.3, pp.10-16. ISSN 1851-300X.

A 45-year-old woman who has suffered from a disseminated vitiligo and a Hashimoto tiroiditis for 11 years, started two years ago with a third disease, a morphea variant “lichen sclerosus et atrophicus” localized in the trunk, abdomen and limbs. The clash of both diseases is very unusual. We suggest the hypothesis of being an isomorphic phenomenon that affects the old macules of the vitiligo more than a simple coincidence of two diseases in the same person.

Keywords : Vitiligo; Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus; Isomorphic phenomenon.
