Lichen simplex chronicus (LSC) is a disorder commonly encountered by dermatologists, caused by constant rubbing of the skin that clinically induces thickening and lichenification. While a case report of LSC of the eyelids has been published,1 a careful search of the literature did not disclose any prior case of LSC of the palpebral conjunctiva.
