NIH Rare Diseases:42 Lichen sclerosus is a skin disorder that can affect men, women, or children, but is most common in women. it usually occurs on the vulva (the outer genitalia or sex organ) in women, but sometimes develops on the head of the penis in men. occasionally, lichen sclerosus is seen on other parts of the body, especially the upper body, breasts, and upper arms.  other names for lichen sclerosus include kraurosis vulvae and hypoplastic dystrophy. last updated: 1/8/2013

MalaCards: Lichen Sclerosus, also known as lichen sclerosus et atrophicus, is related to squamous cell carcinoma and lichen planus. An important gene associated with Lichen Sclerosus is ECM1 (extracellular matrix protein 1), and among its related pathways are Immune response IL-12-induced IFN-gamma production and Downstream signaling in naive CD8+ T cells. The compounds cycloheximide and dexamethasone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin and breast, and related mouse phenotypes are reproductive system and immune system.
