In summary, we present a case and dermoscopic findings for a 33-year-old woman whose clinical and histopathologic features were not consistent with HA, HV, lichen nitidus, PMLE, and actinic prurigo.

17 cases of Lichen striatus, 5 cases of Linear Lichen planus, 2 cases of inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus, Paederus dermatitis, Lichen nitidus and 1 case of Hypomelanosis of Ito and Linear and whorled nevoid hypermelanosis were encountered.

Lichen nitidus, which manifests as shiny papules, is a relatively uncommon, asymptomatic, idiopathic inflammatory eruption usually found on the abdomen, pelvic area, or extremities.
The etiology and pathogenesis of lichen nitidus remain poorly understood.
* Lichen nitidus
is rare and when it does occur, it typically develops in children.

, which literally means "shiny moss," is a relatively rare, chronic skin eruption that is characterized clinically by asymptomatic, flat-topped, sharply demarcated, skin-colored papules, which are sometimes described as being "pinpoint."
This confirmed the diagnosis of Lichen scrofulosorum and ruled out the other possibilities of lichen nitidus

Biopsy may be necessary to rule out lichen nitidus
