Lichen nitidus is a rare dermatosis of unknown etiology; it consists of small, hemispherical, shiny and flesh-coloured papules commonly asymptomatic or sometimes itchy. It has predilection on the genitals, lower abdomen, flexor surfaces of forearms and wrists. There are rare reports of patients having a more generalized distribution of lesions. Lichen nitidus lesions resolve spontaneously in months or years. We present a case of generalized lichen nitidus.
