The ulcerative variant of lichen planus (LP) commonly involves the oral mucosa but is uncommon and difficult to treat when located on other areas. We describe an unusual case of ulcerative LP involving several surfaces, including the palms and scrotum, in a 50-year-old man with hepatitis C. The patient was recalcitrant to treatment with conventional therapy but obtained clearance with a sustained response using low molecular weight heparin (LMWH). This treatment is an option for patients with LP who are not ideal candidates for standard therapy.
