According to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, Blaschko's lines follow a V- shape over the upper spine, an S- shape over the abdomen, an inverted U- shape from the breast to the upper arm, and perpendicular lines up and down the arms and legs.
Linear dermatoses may be classified as secondary to contact with exogenous agents, the Koebner effect, or a re distributed along dermatomal, vascular, or Blaschko's lines.
