Lichen planus of the eyelid alone is a rarely reported condition with just about 11 cases reported so far in the international literature. We report a case of lichen planus of single lower eyelid with characteristic histopathologic findings on eyelid biopsy. It is unusual to encounter a usually characteristic and often widespread entity like lichen planus occuring at only one site like an eyelid. Lichen planus of the eyelid should be included in the differential diagnosis of eyelid dermatitis.
