FUENZALIDA, H et al. Lichen amyloid as differential diagnosis of grouped papules in the legs. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2017, vol.98, n.3. ISSN 1851-300X.

Amyloid lichen is a type of localized primary cutaneous amyloidosis of unknown etiology. It usually affects adults being more frequent in certain ethnic groups. Clinically it is manifested by pruritic papules frequently located in lower limbs. We present the case of a 50-year-old woman, with a two-year history characterized by papules agminated in the legs that diagnosed amyloid lichen after biopsy.

Keywords : lichen amyloid; amyloidosis; papules.
