Lichen Sclerosus and Thyroid Disease

By Elaine Moore on 5/16/2012

Most likely to occur in postmenopausal women, lichen sclerosus can occur in men and children near puberty.  Besides causing skin lesions that form patchy areas, scar tissue in vulvar lichen sclerosus can cause a painful narrowing of the vagina in women and balanitis in men. Once considered rare, lichen sclerosus is becoming more common and is highly associated with autoimmune thyroid disease and other autoimmune conditions.
