Researchers reveal Cutibacterium acnes as a potential cause of lichen striatus hypopigmentation

Lichen striatus (LS), a skin condition manifesting as linear eruptions following Blaschko’s lines on the trunk or limbs of children, is often accompanied by hypopigmentation (loss of melanin or skin color).

However, the cause behind this trend is not clear.
