Abstract


Background: Lichen striatus (LS) is a linear, inflammatory dermatosis that mainly affects children. To date, there are limited data comparing treatment outcomes between topical agents for pediatric LS.

Objective: To investigate the clinical features and treatment outcomes associated with the use of topical agents for pediatric LS.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records and clinical photographs of 60 pediatric patients classified into three groups according to the topical agent used. Treatment response was evaluated by comparing subjective symptoms and clinical photographs obtained at each visit.

Results: A good response (>75% clinical improvement from baseline) was achieved in 55%, 46.2%, and 42.9% of patients from the calcipotriol, corticosteroid, and calcineurin inhibitor groups, respectively. There were no statistically significant differences in treatment duration among groups. However, when compared to other drugs, calcipotriol showed a trend towards shortening the disease course duration.

Conclusion: Topical use of calcipotriol, as well as corticosteroids and calcineurin inhibitors, may represent useful treatment options for pediatric LS, although further studies are required to confirm their efficacy and long-term safety.
