We hereby report a case of lichen amyloidosus in a 69-year-old man unresponsive to various treatments. The patient was treated by occlusion with hydrocolloid dressings. Considerable subjective and objective improvement was observed with respect to the pruritus and cosmetic appearance. We suggest this convenient and efficacious treatment as first line therapy.
