Abstract

Generalised Cutaneous Dysesthesia Responding to Clonazepam

Eileen J McManus,Peter Wright1and Amanda Oakley2

We describe a rare case of distressing generalized cutaneous dysaesthesia in a patient with hypertrophic lichen planus in which neurological evaluation was normal. The dysaesthesia markedly improved with clonazepam. Most existing therapies for cutaneous dysaesthesia are symptomatic, with our case supporting a role for pharmacological modulators of GABAergic neurotransmission.
