Abstract Lichen striatus is a self-limiting inflammatory condition of unknown etiology in which the lesions follow the lines of Blaschko. We report a series of 61 cases of this condition in children, describing the clinical features, age distribution, and season of onset. The preponderance of cases in the preschool-age group and onset in the spring and summer months support the hypothesis of an environmental agent, possibly an infection, in the etiology of the condition.
