Figure 1: (a) Well-defined scaly erythematous plaques at medial edges of soles with few discrete erythematous to violaceous papules on the feet (psoriasiform type). (b) Classical flat-topped polygonal purplish lichen planus papules on the dorsum of hand in the same patient. (c) Histopathology from sole showing compact orthokeratosis, wedge-shaped hypergranulosis, irregular acanthosis, vacuolar degeneration of basal layer, colloid bodies in basal layer and upper dermis and band-like dermal lymphohistiocytic infiltrate, typical of lichen planus (H and E, ×100)
