Liquen simple y crónico del tobillo

Liquen simple crónico en el tobillo, también conocido como neurodermatitis. Presenta un leve prurito que puede provocar el rascado, lo cual aumenta la irritación y produce un rascado más intenso. El resultado final es un área de piel engrosada, excoriada (arañada) y áspera, que puede presentar hiperpigmentación (incremento de la pigmentación), como se aprecia en la parte anterior del pie, justo debajo de la pierna de esta persona.
