Keratosis lichenoides chronica (KLC) is a rare chronic disorder of keratinization characterized by lichenoid hyperkeratotic papules arranged in a linear pattern, erythematosquamous plaques and seborrhea-like dermatitis on the face.

We report a 2-year-old girl diagnosed with KLC whose lesions, arranged in symmetrical linear fashion, improved after sunlight exposure during the summer.
