Abstract

Lichen planus of the nails is a destructive inflammatory onychodystrophy that is often difficult to treat. We report a case of treatment with combined topical therapy of tazarotene gel and clobetasol gel. This modality may be effective for patients with nail lichen planus without the potential adverse affects of systemic treatments.
