The article focuses on lichen striatus, a relatively rare, benign and self-limiting dermatosis of childhood. It notes that patients commonly present with sudden-onset pink or flesh-coloured lichenoid papules and have hypopigmented macules and papules or involvement of the nails. Furthermore, lichen typically occurs on one side of the body and affects the limbs but can also occur bilaterally and on trunk or face.
