Updates in lichen sclerosis: British Association of Dermatologists guidelines for the management of lichen sclerosus 2018
TLDR
A comprehensive study of genital LS in particular, a disease with an estimated prevalence in adult females of up to 3% and 0 07% in males, is offered, suggesting that irritation from urinary occlusion may play a central role in LS development. Expand
Diagnosis and management of cutaneous and anogenital lichen sclerosus: recommendations from the Italian Society of Dermatology (SIDeMaST).
TLDR
Surgical treatment has become the treatment of choice in male genital LS with persistent phimosis not responsive to medical treatment and the highest level of evidence favors the use of topical high potency corticosteroids. Expand

  • 2021
TLDR
Lichen sclerosus of the vulva (LSV) is seen frequently enough to warrant knowing how to diagnose it and institute appropriate treatment strategies, but a number of alternative treatment options have been mooted, especially if the disease is resistant to topical corticosteroids. Expand
Pathophysiology, Clinical Manifestations, and Treatment of Lichen Sclerosus: a systematic review.
TLDR
LS remains a potentially insidious disease which may lead to debilitating urinary and sexual dysfunction and cross disciplinary research should aim for earlier detection, as well as more effective and durable treatment. Expand
Laser therapy for genital lichen sclerosus: A systematic review of the current evidence base
TLDR
There is poor evidence to support the use of laser therapy for genital LS at present, and effectiveness of laser needs to be robustly investigated in well-conducted RCTs. Expand
Recent advances in understanding and managing Lichen Sclerosus
TLDR
Although circumcision can be curative, the use of topical steroids is typically the first-line treatment and may preserve the foreskin and forgo the need for circumcision altogether, and patients should be made aware of a possible association with penile cancer. Expand
Methotrexate for the treatment of recalcitrant genital and extragenital lichen sclerosus: A retrospective series
TLDR
In this study, more than 50% of patients showed sustained improvement with MTX treatment, and current guidelines recommend the use of MTX as a secondline agent in generalized LS with a dose of 10 to 15 mg/wk for 6 months (low grade of recommendation). Expand
Lichen sclerosus successfully treated with baricitinib plus psoralen and ultraviolet A
TLDR
A case of LS successfully treated with oral baricitinib plus psoralen and ultraviolet A (PUVA) combination therapy and a validated LS questionnaire for her indicated the remarkable improvement of her symptoms and quality of life. Expand
Modern ideas about the sclerosing lichen of the vulva
TLDR
Various methods of treatment and care for this disease, local treatment schemes are presented, an overview of systemic drugs and surgical operations, as well as further observation and management of patients are given. Expand
Paediatric lichen sclerosus: a systematic review of 4516 cases
TLDR
A systematic analysis of the PubMed and Embase databases using the terms 'Lichen sclerosus', 'lichen sclerosis', 'kraurosis vulvae', and 'balanitis xerotica obliterans' in combination with 'child', 'children', 'childhood', 'girl, 'boy' or 'infants' to highlight the need to address LS in the pediatric age group.

Quality of Life Evaluation in Chronic Lichen Sclerosus for Improved Medical Care
TLDR
The dermatology-specific quality of life (DSQL) instrument that has been validated in several skin diseases such as acne, contact dermatitis, and psoriasis, has been adapted to effectively evaluate the impact of LS on the women'squality of life. Expand
[Genital lichen sclerosus].
TLDR
A relatively low recovery rate of genital lichen sclerosus was found in the study, which may be related to an inadequate follow up added to an insufficient treatment adherence. Expand
Diagnosis and Treatment of Lichen Sclerosus An Update
Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic, inflammatory, mucocutaneous disorder of genital and extragenital skin. LS is a debilitating disease, causing itch, pain, dysuria and restriction of micturition,Expand

Comorbid Vulvar Lichen Planus and Lichen Sclerosus
TLDR
Comorbid vulvar LP and LS are not rare; clinicians suspecting one should evaluate for the other and consider separate biopsies of morphologically distinct areas. Expand
Penile carcinoma in patients with genital lichen sclerosus: a multicenter survey.
TLDR
All patients with genital LS should be observed closely to detect the development of neoplastic or preneoplastic lesions as early as possible and survival of patients with penile carcinoma depends on early diagnosis and treatment. Expand
Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus
TLDR
The history, clinical features, pathophysiology, and treatment of lichen sclerosus of the vulva, as well as pregnancy issues and sexual function in patients with this condition are discussed. Expand

TLDR
LS is much more common in boys than is generally assumed and should be suspected in any case of acquired phimosis, and treatment with complete circumcision does not necessarily bring about a definitive cure. Expand
High incidence of lichen sclerosus in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the penis
TLDR
There appears to be a definite association between SCC of the penis and the presence of LS, similar to that reported between LS and vulval SCC in women. Expand
Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus and sexual abuse.
TLDR
There was a high rate of coexisting sexual abuse with LSA, possibly due to genital trauma, and associations with trauma, autoimmunity, and infection were noted in this large series of paediatric LSA. Expand
