Pityriasis Lichenoides Chronica Associated with Use of HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.023

Herein, we present three cases of Pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) in patients who developed the rash after use of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-Coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors. The patients had complete resolution after standard treatment by dermatologists and withdrawal of the offending agents. In one case, the patient had a previous episode of a similar rash that occurred with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors use many years previously. Pityriasis lichenoides chronica is a condition of unknown aetiology. Several agents have been associated with its presentation.
