Lichen sclerosus is an uncommon disease of unknown etiology in which small white areas on the skin may be associated with an atrophic, potentially scarring condition of the perineum. A 45-year-old male patient presented with porcelain white atrophic plaques over shaft and glans penis, along with complaint of intense pruritus, painful penile erection and burning micturition. Presumptive diagnosis of lichen sclerosus was kept. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis.
