(a) There is papillomatosis, parakeratosis, neutrophil exocytosis and spongiform pustules (H & E, X40). (b) Enlargement shows neutrophil exocytosis and spongiform pustules in more detail (H & E, X83). (a) Neutrophil exocytosis and spongiform pustules 50 AN ATLAS OF VULVAL DISEASE Lichen planus (papular variety) Management Cutaneous papular lichen planus is an inflammatory skin condition causing intensely pruritic violaceous shiny papules distributed widely on the skin.

There is follicular delling, which is another helpful physical sign. 20 Extragenital lichen sclerosus with 'cigarette-paper' wrinkling. 21 Extensive lichen sclerosus on the back, which is a common site for extra-genital disease. This patient had no involvement of genital skin. This is not unusual. Note also the purpura at an area where the dermo-epidermal junction has separated.
