The bandlike infiltrate obscuring the dermoepidermal junction with cytoid body formation, confluent hyperkeratosis, irregular acanthosis, basal cell liquefactive degeneration, and apoptosis may closely mimic lichen planus.
Thelichenoid lesions typically show histopathologic features indistinguishable from those of lichen planus: orthokeratosis, hypergranulosis, irregularacanthosis, basal cell hydropic degeneration with cytoid body formation, dense chronic inflammatory infiltration and pigment incontinence (5).In our case biopsy of the bullae reaveled a subepidermal bulla with inflammatory cell infiltration mainly by lymphocytes and eosinophils.
