Lupus Erythematosus–lichen Planus Overlap Syndrome

Lupus erythematosus–lichen planus overlap syndrome (also known as "Lichen planus–lupus erythematosus overlap syndrome") is a true overlap syndrome with features of both lupus erythematosus and lichen planus, with skin lesions usually large, atropic, hypopigmented, red or pink patches and plaques.

Lichen planus–lupus erythematosus overlap syndrome is a rare variant of lichen planus characterized by lesions that share features with lupus erythematosus. Atrophic plaques and patches with hypopigmentation and a livid red to blue-violet color with telangiectasia and minimal scaling are characteristic.

Famous quotes containing the words syndrome, overlap and/or lupus:

    Women are taught that their main goal in life is to serve others—first men, and later, children. This prescription leads to enormous problems, for it is supposed to be carried out as if women did not have needs of their own, as if one could serve others without simultaneously attending to one’s own interests and desires. Carried to its “perfection,” it produces the martyr syndrome or the smothering wife and mother.
    Jean Baker Miller (20th century)

    A lady is nothing very specific. One man’s lady is another man’s woman; sometimes, one man’s lady is another man’s wife. Definitions overlap but they almost never coincide.
    Russell Lynes (b. 1910)

    Regna regnis lupi, The State is a wolf unto the State. It is not a pessimistic lamentation like the old homo homini lupus [Man is a wolf to Man], but a positive creed and political ideal.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
