Hyperpigmented Macules in an Indian boy: is it EDP or LPP ? - A Case Report
Keywords:Erythema dyschromicum perstans, Inverse EDP, LPP, LPP inversus.
Erythema dyschromicum perstans (EDP) and Lichen planus pigmentosus (LPP) are both inflammatory disorders of pigmentation with unknown etiology and are difficult to differentiate clinically and histologicaly. There is no consensus on whether both entities are separate or belong to the same spectrum of cutaneous disorders. We present a 13 year old boy with mostly asymptomatic hyperpigmented lesions over body. The lesions were subsequently diagnosed as EDP after detailed examination and histopatholgical examination.
