Abstract

Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus is a benign hyperplasia of the epidermis. Bilateral distribution of inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus is an extremely rare presentation. Although inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus is generally accepted as a distinct entity, it has similar clinical and histopathologic features to psoriasis, or they occasionally may overlap. We report the case of an 8-year-old boy with bilateral inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus who also had psoriasis.
