Lichen planus is a papulosquamous inflammatory dermatitis that affects less than 1% of the population
Classic lichen planus typically presents as erythematous to violaceous flat-topped papules that are pruritic and polygonal
In actinic LP, specifically, affected people develop mildly itchy, coin-shaped patches on sun exposed areas such as the face, the neck and the backs of the hands
Mild cases can often be managed with topical steroids, while more intensive therapies may be required for severe cases
Actinic LP is more common in dark-skinned populations; it is extremely rare in caucasians
