Abstract

Lichen myxedematosus(LM), also known as papular mucinosis, is a rare, idiopathic disorder caused by the focal dermal deposition of mucin and occurs both as an isolated entity and manifestations of various systemic disorders. Cutaneous disease is common in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus(HIV) and cutaneous mucinosis has been reported with increased frequency in HIV patients. A male patient with HIV infection was consulted to our clinic for evaluation of asymptomatic diffusely-scattered papules on his upper extremities and trunk. Histopathological finding was the deposition of mucin in the dermis and lichen myxedematosus type 2 was diagnosed. We present of a case of lichen myxedematosus in a HIV-infected male patient.
