Wise-Rein disease (Lichen ruber moniliformis) is a rare skin disease named for Fred Wise and Charles R. Rein.[1][2]

It is one of several diseases also known as Kaposi's disease, based on its characterization in 1886 by Moritz Kaposi.[1][3]

It is thought to be a rare variety of lichen planus.

It is also known as "Morbus moniliformis lichenoides".[4]


The disease causes numerous whitish punctiform papules and brownish macules arranged in a necklace-like pattern.
