Keratosis lichenoid chronica is a rare dermatologic anomaly believed to be a variant of lichen planus. It presents as violaceous, nodular lesions usually on the dorsal aspects of the extremities and the trunk. The disease is refractory to treatment although psoralen ultraviolet A therapy and oral retinoids have been proven useful in some cases. Here we present the case of a 58-year-old male diagnosed with keratosis lichenoid chronica. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 102(3): 264–266, 2012)
