Graham Little Piccardi Lasseur Syndrome (GLPLS) is a rare variant of lichen planopilaris comprising of a triad of multifocal and patchy cicatricial alopecia of scalp, non-cicatricial alopecia of axillae and pubic region and keratotic follicular papules over a body. Its exact etiology is not known until date, but primarily involves an immune mediated inflammatory reaction against the bulge region of hair follicles resulting in cicatricial alopecia. We report an extensive and diffuse presentation of this rare syndrome in a middle-aged female with hypertrophic lichen planus (LP) present on malar region of face, etiologically relating GLPLS to LP.
