ORAL LICHENOID LESIONS: PATHOGENESIS, CLINICAL FEATURES, HISTOPATHOLOGY AND TREATMENT
Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
INTRODUCTION & ETIOLOGY
Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic mucosal disorder of autoimmune pathogenesis, for which the etiology is yet unknown. While OLP could be clinically diagnosed beyond doubt when manifesting in its characteristic “bilateral & reticular” form, there may be instances where certain lesions may clinically appear very similar but lack certain classic characteristics of OLP or may have a specific etiologic factor. Such lesions are a group of mucosal diseases called “oral lichenoid lesions (OLL)”.
