Abstract:  Keratosis lichenoides chronica (KLC) is an acquired keratinization disorder that is rare in childhood. We report a case of sporadic pediatric-onset KLC with seborrheic dermatitis-like lesions on the forehead, papules in a retiform pattern in the axillae and mons pubis, and eye and oral mucosal involvement,with additional features of premature canities and a transient photosensitive eruption.
