The clinical and histological response to 12 weeks of treatment with a very potent topical fluorinated steroid was studied in 15 patients with vulval lichen sclerosus (LS) who were treated with twice eaily applications of clobetasol propionate 0.05% cream (Dermovate, Glaxo U.K.), Thirteen patients completed the study and all showed a marked clinical improvement. Histological measurements of skin biopsies taken before and after treatment showed a significant reduction in the characteristic… Expand
Successful treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus in a child with low‐concentration topical tacrolimus ointment
TLDR
This is the first report of topical low‐concentration tacrolimus treatment showing a dramatic effect in the treatment of childhood vulvar lichen sclerosus, which was refractory to topical corticosteroids in a 5‐year‐old girl. Expand
Pimecrolimus Cream 1% in the Treatment of Lichen Sclerosus
TLDR
Patient-applied 1% pimecrolimus cream is safe and effective for the treatment of LS, and there were no systemic adverse reactions, although mild local skin reactions were reported by 50% of the patients. Expand
Treatment of Childhood Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus with Potent Topical Corticosteroid
TLDR
It is concluded that in children, as in adults, potent topical corticosteroid is a safe and effective treatment for vulvar lichen sclerosus. Expand
Clobetasol propionate 0·05% cream in the treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus: effect on the immunohistological profile
TLDR
Preliminary data from a trial in which 20 cases of vulvar LSA were treated with clohetasol propionate showed that the clinical and histological cure rate was markedly higher than that oiitained in a control group treated with topical 2% testosterone. Expand
Tacrolimus ointment for the treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus.
TLDR
A 71-year-old woman with long-standing vulvar lichen sclerosus refractory to conventional treatment is described, and the first report of the use of topical tacrolimus, which does not induce skin atrophy, is reported. Expand
Topical testosterone in the treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus
TLDR
Petrolatum ointment is as effective as 2% testosterone in the treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus and no case demonstrated histologic modifications. Expand
Successful treatment of anogenital lichen sclerosus with topical tacrolimus.
TLDR
Topical tacrolimus is a promising novel agent in the treatment of lichen sclerosus of the anogenital area and a major advantage over topical corticosteroids is the lack of skin atrophy. Expand
Penile lichen sclerosus et atrophicus treated with clobetasol dipropionate 0.05% cream: a retrospective clinical and histopathological study.
TLDR
Topical treatment of penile LSA with clobetasol propionate represents a safe and effective therapy with no risk of epidermal atrophy but with some potential for triggering latent infections, most importantly human papillomavirus. Expand
Topical oxatomide: an alternative approach for the treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus
TLDR
Results indicate that both regimens are significantly correlated with vulvar pruritus improvement and that 5% oxatomide gel has better anti‐itching effects compared to the placebo and could suggest the introduction of oxatomides, in selected patients, as an alternative for the treatment of vulvar lichen sclerosus.

Vulval lichen sclerosus et atrophicus treated with etretinate (Tigason).
TLDR
Treatment with etretinate should be tried in vulval lichen sclerosus et atrophicus if the result of other therapeutical efforts are unsatisfactory and there was a marked change in the histological picture towards normalization. Expand

TLDR
A good clinical and histologic correlation was noted following local steroid application in patients with histologically proven hyperplastic dystrophy. Expand
Serum levels of sex hormones in vulvar lichen sclerosus, and the effect of topical testosterone.
TLDR
The results suggest that abnormal enzymatic activity (5 alpha-reductase) may be responsible for this disease and indicate a need for similar studies of the disorder in other locations. Expand

Contact dermatitis from clobetasol propionate
TLDR
A 58-year-old Chmese male presented wzth recurrent pruntus of hts hands and forearms of 3 months duration, which showed reactions to colophony and neomycm, and a 3 + reaction to proflavme hydrochlonde 0.5% pet. Expand
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
