Figure 8: (a) Pityriasis lichenoides – note the dyskeratotic cells/colloid bodies throughout the epidermis (high apoptotic keratinocytes) and squamatization of the basal layer (H and E, ×400). (b) Lichen planus – note the dyskeratotic keratinocyte with eosinophilic condensed cytoplasm and pyknotic nuclear remnants (Civatte cell) (H and E, ×400)
