Linear atrophoderma of Moulin
a - b) Linear hyperpigmented atrophic plaque

Linear atrophoderma of Moulin (also known as "Moulin atrophoderma linearis"[1]) is an acquired unilateral dermatitis localized along the Blaschko lines. It affects children or adolescents of both genders, involving the trunk and the limbs. It is, presumably, a rare cutaneous form of mosaicism.[2] This disease was first referred to as Atrophoderma of Moulin after Dr. Moulin who first reported it in 1992[3] then was renamed as linear atrophoderma of Moulin.[4] Only a few dozen cases have been described; for this reason, LAM is considered to be a very rare disorder.[5][6][7]
