    Lichenoid keratoses (also known as "Benign lichenoid keratosis", "Lichen planus-like keratosis", "Solitary lichenoid keratosis," and "Solitary lichen planus") are a cutaneous condition characterized by brown to red, scaling maculopapules found on sun-exposed skin of extremities. Restated, this is a cutaneous condition usually characterized by a solitary dusky-red to violaceous papular skin lesion.

    So, I think go thro' Index of diseases ....

    Keratosis --> (If site specified then the site specified) --> 701.1.

    Hope this helps!
