We describe a 54-year-old black woman with Crohn's disease, who developed lichen nitidus, the third report of a patient with both diseases. The rarity of these diseases individually and the histopathologic features in common imply that the two diseases are linked. Multinucleated giant cells, a common finding in the lesions of Crohn's disease, are less common in the lesions of lichen nitidus. The presence of multinucleated giant cells in lichen nitidus in all three case reports is distinctly… 
Purpuric Generalized Lichen nitidus: An Unusual Eruption Simulating Pigmented Purpuric Dermatosis
TLDR
Purpuric generalized lichen nitidus should be included in the differential diagnosis of pigmented purpuric dermatoses, as it is shown that this form of presentation has only been reported once.
Generalized Lichen Nitidus with Involvement of the Palms following Interferon α Treatment
TLDR
The case of a generalized lichen nitidus with involvement of the palms in a patient with hepatitis C after systemic treatment with interferon α and ribavirin is presented and a strong lesional expression of MxA, a protein specifically induced by type I interferons is shown.
Diseases associated with hidranitis suppurativa: part 2 of a series on hidradenitis.
TLDR
Hidradenitis suppurativa, a pathologic follicular disease, impacts patients' lives profoundly and usually occurs in isolation and can be considered a disease in the spectrum of metabolic syndrome, a skin disease with systemic consequences.

Liquen nitidus generalizado: a propósito de un caso
El liquen nitidus es una dermatosis poco frecuente de origen desconocido caracterizada por pequenas papulas hemiesfericas, brillantes y del color de la piel, habitualmente asintomaticas o ligeramente
Investigation of metabonomics technique by analyze of NMR data, which method is better? Mean center or auto scale?
TLDR
Results reveal that the mean centering is more useful to segregate patients from healthy subjects in the data set of Crohn's and Celiac disease and preprocessing the spectroscopic data is essential.

TLDR
A patient who presented with crusted malar plaques and a long-standing history of Crohn's disease recently presented with skin lesions relapsed and recurred in concert with exacerbations of the gastrointestinal disorder, and it is believed that this to be a previously unrecognized pattern of Crohan's disease involving the skin.

Erythema nodosum, lichen planus and lichen nitidus in Crohn's disease: report of a case and analysis of T cell receptor V gene expression in the cutaneous and intestinal lesions.
TLDR
A patient with a 2-year history of CD who developed both lichen planus and lichen nitidus in addition to erythema nodosum lesions is described, finding that LP and LN lesions are likely to be mediated by T cells with antigen specificity distinct from those that cause EN and intestinal lesions.

Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa. Report of a case associated with Crohn's disease.
TLDR
There is an association of cutaneous polyarteritis and Crohn's disease, and also, immunosuppressive therapy plays a role in the development of histiocytic lymphoma.
Vesiculopustular Eruption of Crohn's Disease
TLDR
A 16‐year‐old Hispanic girl with gastrointestinal complaints and an unusual cutaneous eruption consisting of vesiculopustules and blanching erythematous plaques with peripheral scale is reported, which broadens the spectrum of neutrophilbased cutaneous disorders associated with inflammatory bowel disease.
GENERALIZED LICHEN NITIDUS AND JUVENILE CHRONIC ARTHRITIS: AN UNDESCRIBED ASSOCIATION
TLDR
After evaluating immunohistochemical and gene expression studies, these authors suggest that the lesions of LN and LP are likely to be mediated by T cells with antigen specificity distinct from those that cause erythema nodosum and intestinal lesions.
Lichen nitidus and Crohn's disease.
TLDR
A case of lichen nitidus (LN) was found to be associated with Crohn’s disease and some histological features suggest a relationship between both diseases.
