Secukinumab and ixekizumab are IL17A inhibitors most commonly used to treat psoriasis. Common side effects include upper respiratory tract infections, injection site reactions, and mucocutaneous candidiasis. Recently, these medications have been reported to trigger lichen planus and lichenoid reactions have also been reported as an emerging side effect of biologics, especially tumor necrosis factor inhibitors. Herein, we report a patient with lichen planus that appeared after initiation of secukinumab for the treatment of psoriasis.
