Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus is a rare, chronic, mucocutaneous disorder of unknown etiology predominantly involving the anogenital skin and mucosa. It is rarely seen exclusively at an extragenital site. A 40-year-old man presented with multiple asymptomatic clear fluid-filled vesicles with shiny atrophic papules over bilateral thighs and the calf region for a period of 4 months. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of bullous lichen sclerosus. The patient showed significant improvement with topical clobetasol propionate 0.05% and tacrolimus 0.1% ointment.
