We describe surjective Lie homomorphisms from Lie ideals of skew elements of algebras with involution onto noncentral Lie ideals (factored by their centers) of skew elements of prime algebras ${\mathcal {D}}$ with involution, provided that $\operatorname {char}({\mathcal {D}})\not =2$ and ${\mathcal {D}}$ is not PI of low degree. This solves the last remaining open problem of Herstein on Lie isomorphisms module cases of PI rings of low degree. A more general problem on maps preserving any polynomial is also discussed.
