The development of vulval lichen sclerosus et atrophicus in monozygotic twins is described. This is the first report of the occurrence of lichen sclerosus et atrophicus in two genetically identical individuals, and is considered to provide further evidence that inherited factors are of relevance in the aetiology of this disorder. 
Genital Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus in Monozygotic Twin Women: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
TLDR
This is a report of the occurrence of lichen sclerosus et atrophicus in monozygotic twin women, suggesting that inheritance is of relevance in the etiology of this disease. Expand
Familial lichen sclerosus et atrophicus in childhood.
TLDR
Genital LSA in two young sisters who were diagnosed a year apart are reported, and it is reported that genital LSA is seen occasionally in young children. Expand
Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus of the oral mucosa.
TLDR
A case of oral LSA without concurrent genital or skin lesions in a patient with vitiligo and hyperthyroidism is described, together with a review of the literature. Expand
Familial lichen sclerosus et atrophicus in association with CREST syndrome: a case report
TLDR
A case of a young woman with CREST syndrome who has a documented family history of two sisters with lichen sclerosus et atrophicus who presented with vulvar pruritas in association with dyspareunia is described. Expand
Anogenital Lichen Sclerosus in Women
TLDR
The wide age range of the condition, the association with morphoea and lichen planus and the occurrence of squamous cell carcinoma in some cases are demonstrated and inappropriate surgery has continued to be carried out for benign disease. Expand
Clinical recommendation: pediatric lichen sclerosus.
TLDR
Treatment includes topical anti-inflammatory agents and long-term follow-up as there is a high risk of recurrence and an increased risk of vulvar cancer in adult women with history of lichen sclerosus. Expand
Risk factors for genital lichen sclerosus in men
TLDR
This poster focuses on the part of the immune system of the central nervous system that is affected by LS, specifically the inflammation of the connective tissue and the immune defences. Expand
Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus and autoimmunity—a study of 350 women
A study of autoimmune related phenomena in 350 women with histologically confirmed lichen sclerosus et atrophicus revealed that 21.5% had one or more autoimmune related diseases, 21% had one or moreExpand
Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus.
TLDR
Although the evidence linking LSA with HLA types is at present somewhat confusing, these findings suggest that there is a significance awaiting elucidation, as well as the suggestion that some local anomaly of sex-hormone metabolism is involved. Expand

TLDR
