Abstract :

Introduction: Lichen planus (LP) is a chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous diasease that is often diagnosed on the basis of clinical &/or histopathologic findings. However, it has some characteristic direct immunofluorescence (DIF) findings that can help in diagnosing confusing cases.Aim:We analyzed DIF findings in skin biopsy in LP compared to histopathology. Materials & methods: A skin biopsy of lesion was taken from 15 cases of LP(13 classic LP & 2 LP pigmentosus) & subjected to histopathology & DIF examination. Results:The sensitivity of histopathology and DIF was found to be 100% & 93.3% respectivelyfor the diagnosis of LP & LPP.
