Lichen Planus and Nephrotic syndrom

Today one of my old nephrotic syndrome child presented with skin lesions bilaterally symmetrical violaceous polygonal pruritic papules present over both upper limbs, diagnostic of lichen planus.

Coincidence of lichen planus in nephrotic syndrome may reflect common immunological abnormalities, based on altered cell mediated immunity. It has already been reported from our friend Dr Sriram from JIPMER.  Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory dermatological condition usually affecting adults, but rare in children. The diagnosis is essentially clinical.
