Primary cutaneous amyloidosis (PCA ) is the deposition of the amyloid in the skin without systemic involvement. It has three subtypes: macular, lichen and nodular. Lichen amyloidosis is the most common subtype and usually presents as severely pruritic plaques on the shins or other extensor surfaces,. lichen amyloidosis has also been reported in association with autoimmune diseases such as systemic sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus and primary biliary cirrhosis. I report the case of a 41-year-old female patient who developed lichen amyloidosis as an early presentation of underlying inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) with complete response to IBD treatment. IBD has been reported with various skin manifestations but this association has not been reported in the literature.
