Peripheral dotted/linear vessels together with round, linear, reticular or annular pearly- whitish structures are characteristic of lichen planus (A. Lallas et al., 2014). Histopathologically, whitish structures reveal compact orthokeratosis above zones of wedge-shaped hypergranulosis and acanthosis and are the equivalent of Wickham striae (Vázquez-López et al., 2003).
