Title: Successful management of lichen myxedematosus

Abstract

Radiation therapy led to local resolution of a case of lichen myxedematosus, which, to our knowledge, is the first reported successful treatment of the disease by radiation therapy. Radiation therapy is only the second therapeutic modality that is effective in the treatment of lichen myxedematosus. We propose specific criteria for the diagnosis of lichen myxedematosus to facilitate future studies into the nature of this disease. (auth)
