Linear Atrophoderma of Moulin (LAM) is a rare dermatosis characterized by a hyperpigmented atrophoderma that follows Blaschko’s lines with onset usually during childhood and adolescence. LAM is etiologically unknown form of dermal atrophy. Generally they were characterized as ovally or round shaped, atrophic, non-sclerotic, hyperpigmented patches following the lines of Blaschko. These patches are usually located in the trunk in addition to upper and lower extremities. In this study, we discussed about a case who had the nonclassical form of LAM with the initial lesions as papules.
