Monfrecola G, Iandoli R, Bruno G, Martellotta D.
The result of topical treatment by dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) in a patient with lichen amyloidosus is reported. Itching improved within five days of therapy. Remarkable flattening of the papules was obtained within two weeks. The clinical result was confirmed by histological examination which revealed partially disappearance of amyloid deposits.
