In order to establish a possible relationship between keratosis lichenoides chronica (KLC) and lichen planus (LP), we performed a comparative study which included routine histologic examination, electron microscopy, and direct immunohistochemical studies from one case of KLC and several patients with LP. Our findings demonstrate that KLC and LP share many similarities; their differences are mostly quantitative. In KLC, the findings are more prominent; we therefore conclude that KLC is at one end of the spectrum of LP.
