Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus (LSA) is a rare, chronic, mucocutaneous disease of unknown cause. Onset can occur in subjects of any age but more prevalent in adult females around the time of menopause. In both the sexes anogenital involvement is more common. Extragenital cases are rare, and common localizations are neck and shoulders, axilla, upper arms, flexor aspects of wrists and around the umbilicus. Bullous LSA is an unusual manifestation of the disease. Isolated extragenital bullous LSA is a distinctly rare event with very few cases reported till date.
