Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a rare dermatosis characterized by porcelain-white rounded macules or plaques, with sharp borders and parchment consistency, occurring most commonly on the trunk and anogenital skin. Although its etiology remains unclear, LS is thought to be an immune-mediated disease caused by cytotoxic T lymphocytes. Treatment is symptomatic. Steroid creams and topical agents bring only temporary improvement. This report presents a man with severe LS and stenosis of the urethral lumen that was surgically treated with a parameatal transposition skin flap.
