Answer

A spectrum of clinical features is seen, and progression may be step-wise. The condition ranges from minor cosmetic disability to severe disfiguring disease. In most patients who receive treatment, a stable state is reached with variable residual symptomatology. The disease takes a chronic relapsing or progressive course for some patients.
