I was diagnosed with Lichen Amyloidosis on my legs

Posted by CAH @moncheriann, Jun 3, 2015

After 40 years, I was diagnosed with Lichen Amyloidosis on my legs. Has anyone else dealt with this or have any further information on it? The only thing I have found is online from the UK. Do I need to worry about long-term problems beside being self-conscious? The Dermatologist who finally diagnosed my condition has since retired.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Skin Health Support Group.

I have been dealing with this as well. Have you been able to find anything to help with this condition?

We'd sincerely like to hear back from you with any updates or questions you might have.


I was given a differential diagnosis by my rheumatologist after presenting with swelling of my tongue. I don't really know what ALL my diagnosis are, but what are symptoms on your legs like?
