Lichenoid tissue reaction/interface dermatitis skin diseases have traditionally been subdivided into those clinical disorders that display a high-density (cell-rich) inflammatory infiltrate and those that display a low-density (cell-poor) infiltrate (Romero et al., 1977; Sontheimer and Gilliam, 1981).Clinical examples of a cell-rich LTR include lichen planus and its variants. Lichenoid tissue reaction or interface dermatitis is some of the commonly encountered clinical and histological presentations in dermatology and pathology. The term interface dermatitis refers to the finding in a skin biopsy of an inflammatory infiltrate that abuts or obscures the dermo-epidermal junction
Dermatopathological findings in SLE include a lichenoid tissue reaction and a band of immunoglobulins at the dermo-epidermal junction (detected by direct immunofluorescence of clinically involved skin).. Dermatopathology of systemic lupus erythematosus This shows a dense perivascular and periadnexal lymphocytic inflammatory infiltrate and interface changes with vacuolar degeneration of basal laye Lichenoid and granulomatous dermatitis: Points to ponder. By Kiran Motaparthi, MD. June 10, 2020. Vol. 2, No. 23. Clinical-pathologic correlation is the foundation of dermatologic diagnosis; often this is straightforward, but on occasion, getting to the precise diagnosis requires great thought and sleuthing Lichenoid eruptions are reported in association with anti-PDI (programmed death 1) therapy for various cancers. Drugs that commonly cause photo-LDE are thiazide diuretics, tetracycline, quinine and quinidine. Furosemide, sparfloxacin, ethambutol and clopidogrel have also been implicated
Some treatments that may provide relief include: Corticosteroids in the form of mouthwashes, gels, ointments or powders, pills or injections Immune response medications like pimecrolimus cream and tacrolimus ointment applied directly to the affected area, or a systemic medication taken internall Spongiotic, Psoriasiform, and Lichenoid Dermatoses Laura E. K. Gifford Emily J. Osier Charlene W. Oldfield Judith V. Williams Alejandro A. Gru ATOPIC DERMATITIS Definition and Epidemiology Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, relapsing inflammatory skin condition defined by pruritus.1 The most widely used diagnostic criteria specify that a patient must have pruritus with an eczematous dermatiti If your lichenoid mucositis is triggered by medication, it's more likely to show up as a single lesion instead of several lesions or sores. Diagnosis and Treatment for Lichenoid Mucositis. The most challenging aspect of treating this condition is identifying the cause. Oral lichenoid lesions are often mistaken as oral lichen planus Histologic examination reveals lichenoid interface dermatitis . This topic will discuss the pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of lichenoid drug eruptions. Lichen planus and other types of cutaneous adverse reactions to drugs are discussed separately. (See Lichen planus.
. LTR is found in clinical conditions with lichenoid poikilodermatous and pigmentary dermatoses Histologically, lichenoid drug reactions resemble lichen planus at low-power magnification. Clues that a lichenoid tissue reaction represents a lichenoid drug eruption include parakeratosis, diminished granular cell layer, and a mixed inflammatory infiltrate, including plasma cells, eosinophils, and neutrophils (Fig. 48-14)
All 3 specimens from the head and neck showed primarily a spongiotic tissue reaction. In addition, however, the specimen from the left cheek showed patchy vacuolar change with occasional apoptotic cells and pigment incontinence, suggesting a lichenoid reaction pattern consistent with the clinical pattern seen the result was, lichenoid inflammation, negative for dysplasia. In October 2017 another cytology was positive for candida. In November of that year, a biopsy for buccal of #24 was done and the result was, lichenoid reaction. In March 2018, a biopsy of the upper right gingiva showed, lichenoid inflammation with atypia Dermatitis is inflammation of the skin. Spongiotic dermatitis involves fluid buildup in your skin. It's typically seen as red, itchy areas, and can occur anywhere on your body. We'll review.
There is no cure, but many different medications and procedures have been used in efforts to control the symptoms .The majority are able to be maintained on their anti-PD1 therapy (81%) and it was concluded that treatment can still be continued .Furthermore, it has been reported that the majority respond well to topical steroids and holding immunotherapy may not be needed in contrast to.
Oral lichenoid contact reaction to cinnamon-containing products such as gums and candies can cause a hypersensitivity reaction termed cinnamon stomatitis. 1, 2, 3 The histology overlaps with oral. . Lichen striatus is representative of an acquired cutaneous linear inflammatory dermatosis running along the lines of Blaschko, characterized histopathologically by the predominance of lichenoid infiltration. Adult blaschkitis, however, is considered under the same disease spectrum as lichen striatus. In 1973 Pinkus  coined the term lichenoid tissue reaction to describe the histological pattern featuring damage to keratinocytes, now referred to as apoptosis, infiltrate of inflammatory cells in the connective tissue which may extend into the epithelium and keratosis or hyperkeratosis.He described this histopathological pattern common to several diseases referred to above rather than. Lichenoid dermatoses.potx 1. Lichenoid Dermatoses 2. Lichenoid Dermatoses They represent a heterogeneous inflammatory group of conditions that resemble idiopathic LP in terms of their clinical appearance and histological appearance demonstrating lichenoid tissue reaction characterized by; • Liquefaction degeneration of epidermal basal cells • Band-like infiltrate primarily lymphocytes in.
A lichenoid infiltrate without interface tissue reaction or cytologic atypia was observed. There were extravasated red blood cells and siderophages, along with fibrosis and exocytosis ( Fig 6 ). Similar to the previous cases, the T cell infiltrate was considered reactive based on the ratio of CD8:CD4 expression and retention of CD7 expression The mainstay of treatment remains topical corticosteroids; however, newer therapies such as immunomodulating agents are available for recalcitrant lesions. In cases of lichenoid mucositis or reactions, treatment should be directed at identifying and removing the presumed cause Many of the responsible medications are also known for their ability to induce a lichenoid tissue reaction. Aminoquinoline antimalarials are currently the first line of therapy in cutaneous LE specific skin disease. Lichenoid tissue reactions are among the most common cutaneous side effects of aminoquinolone antimalarials connective tissue (Magnification X100).

Lichenoid Dermatitis with Eosinophils Treatment. Lichenoid dermatitis is an inflammatory dermatological condition that results in damage to the mucous membranes and inner layers of skin tissues such as dermis, and hair follicles. The disease takes its name from the appearance of the scaly rash that resembles lichens according to WebMD between 2011 and 2017 were reviewed. Inclusion required age of older than 18 years, a lichenoid tissue reaction, and insufficient abnormal dermal collagen to diagnose lichen sclerosus. Clinical and histopathologic data were collected and cases were categorized as hypertrophic, classic, or nonspecific lichenoid dermatosis. Descriptive statistics were performed and groups were compared with the. Lichenoid reactions should be evoked in the context of the introduction of a new treatment. The duration of onset of lichenoid lesions varies widely, ranging from 2 weeks to a few months. These lesions generally regress with the suppression of the cause sometimes leaving cheloid type scars in the oral mucosa A lichenoid drug eruption is a reaction to a medication. Some of the types of drugs that may trigger this condition include: anticonvulsants, such as carbamazepine (Tegretol) or phenytoin.
. Each of the OLR is governed by different immunological mechanisms and is triggered by distinct causative factors, although the pathological process will result clinically similar reaction pattern Oral lichenoid reaction (OLR) refers to oral lichen planus (OLP) or oral lichenoid mucositis (OLM). Oral lichenoid mucositis could be one of three conditions, which include lichenoid contact stomatitis from dental restorative materials (OLM-dental), mucosal reaction to systemic drug administration (OLM-drug) and contac Pathology of immune-mediated tissue lesions following treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors overlying epidermal spongiosis and patchy necrotic keratinocytes are seen. Lichenoid dermatosis shows hyperkeratosis and hypergranulosis. More severe mucocutaneous skin reactions such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal. The coexistence of hyperkeratotic striation/reticulation, varying degrees of mucosal inflammation from mild erythema to severe widespread ulceration, and a band-like infiltrate of mononuclear inflammatory cells including activated T lymphocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells, are considered suggestive of oral lichen planus and lichenoid lesions We present a rare case of hypertrophic lichenoid dermatitis during treatment for non-small cell lung carcinoma with pembrolizumab.

Lichenoid drug eruption is rare and can mimic idiopathic lichen planus and other dermatoses. Clonazepam, a commonly used drug for the treatment of anxiety-related disorders and seizures, is known to be an unlikely cause of cutaneous adverse effects. Only one case report of LDE due to clonazepam has been reported. A 81-year-old male patient with Alzheimer's disease developed a lichenoid. INH Induced Lichenoid Eruptions Partha Pratim Chakraborty*, Prabodh Chandra Mondal** (1) (2) Figs. 1 and 2 : Brown black eruptions over dorsal aspects of palms and soles Fig. 3 (a and b) : Cutaneous histopathology suggesting lichenoid tissue reaction Fig. 4 : Morphologically similar lesions (like Fig. 1 and 2) over peri-oral regio

Under these circumstances, it seems reasonable to exploit Brown RS, Bottomley WK, Puente E, Lavigne GJ (1993) Lichenoid drug eruption, also known as drug-induced lichen planus, is an uncommon cutaneous adverse effect of several drugs. 1, 2 It is characterized by a symmetric eruption resembling lichen. Basal cells disappeared in areas of OLLs in this study, and common events in the lichenoid tissue reaction are speculated to include activation of dendritic cells and keratinocytes, and recruitment and activation of T cells, followed by cytotoxic damage to keratinocytes with release of keratinocyte antigens 
Statin medications [3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors] are generally used to treat hypercholesterolemia. Lichenoid drug eruptions are a potential cutaneous side effect of medications including antibiotics, antimalarials, and statins. This drug eruption can mimic features of idiopathic lichen planus in clinical presentation and pathology In these patients, the histological findings of early lesions are identical to those seen in lichen planopilaris. The lichenoid tissue reaction leading to follicular destruction in these patients might be pathogenetically related to the events underlying androgenetic alopecia Background: Oral lichenoid reaction (OLR) is a type IV cell-mediated immune response in the oral cavity. There is an established relationship between various dental materials and OLR, but few cases reports reported the occurrence of a lichenoid reaction in association with the use of a Hawley retainer Lichenoid dermatoses and tissue reactions are some of the most diverse clinical and histologic presentations in dermatology and pathology. The term interface dermatitis is sometimes used interchangeably. The prototypical lichenoid dermatitis is lichen planus. Yet, there are numerous diseases that have similar histology

.15 Lichenoid reactions to amalgam do not migrate, they occur on mucosal tissue in direct contact with the restoration, and they resolve once the amalgam restoration is removed.16 Some studies indicate an increased risk of squamous cell carcinoma in patients with OLP lesions.17-20 This. Oral Lichenoid Reactions •Oral lichenoid contact lesions (OLCL's) are seen in direct topographic relationship to an offending agent •This reaction is most often attributable to dental restorative materials, most commonly amalgam •With the removal and replacement of the putative causative material, th Lichenoid keratosis treatment. Lichenoid keratosis is harmless and resolves spontaneously. If there is any doubt about the diagnosis, dermatoscopic digital images can be taken and used in follow-up a few months later. Lichenoid keratosis can be removed if desired by liquid nitrogen, electrosurgery or curettage
Lichenoid drug reaction is termed as a condition of the oral cavity having an identifiable etiology, which is clinically and histologically similar to oral lichen planus. A number of drugs have been described as a causative factor of those reactive lesions Lichenoid drug eruptions are usually ill-defined erythematous erosive lesions with a lichen-like hyperkeratosis, and in both lichen planus and lichenoid tissue reaction, the cytotoxic CD8+ T cells outnumber the CD4+ T helper cells on the background of a Th1 cytokine milieu  connective tissue but usually close to the epithelium-connective tissue junction. While in oral lichenoid reaction colloid bodies were mostly seen in lower spinous layer of epithelium. Conclusion: Colloid bodies can be used as one of the criteria to differentiate oral lichen planus from oral lichenoid reaction

Arch Dermatol 1973;107:840-6. 18 lichenoid tissue reaction (Table 1), were closely followed up without treatment; interestingly these patients were younger than the group with fully established LS (median age: 4.8 yr; range: 0.5-9.8 yr). Compared to fully developed LS this was mainly a histopathologic coincidence finding (88.9%); 77.8 lichenoid characteristics, as well as the handling and treatment of patients with these lesions. Oral lichenoid lesions related to contact with dental material OLLCs can be seen in direct topographic relation to a causal agent. This reaction is often attributed to dental restorative materials, mercury amalgam being the most common (10) The cause(s) of the various oral lichenoid lesions, ranging from idiopathic oral lichen planus (OLP) to the contact lesion, is not understood, but all the lesions are characterized histologically by a typical lichenoid tissue reaction featuring (1) a bandlike lymphohistiocytic infiltrate that fills the lamina propria; and (2. Lichenoid drug eruptions are not mentioned in the SmPCs of metoprolol, bisoprolol or atenolol. Psoriasis, aggravation of psoriasis or psoriatiform skin reactions are described as very rare to uncommon adverse drug reactions (1: 100-10.000) [1-3].

The term interface dermatitis is therefore apt because these findings occur at the interface between the epidermis and dermis. This common thread binds otherwise disparate entities together. Other terms applied to this group of disorders include vacuolar dermatitis, vacuolar interface dermatitis, and lichenoid tissue reaction Lichenoid tissue reaction is characterized by epidermal basal layers injury by T-cells. Effector T-cells activated by several stimulants or cross-reaction with drugs, viruses, chemicals, or self-antigens induce lichenoid tissue reactions, and in our case, drug-specific T-cells, especially CD8-positive T-cells, may be recruited to the. Lichenoid dermatitis is a rare complication after radiation therapy and is often considered as a delayed hypersensitivity reaction.
