Ulcerative lichen planus (ULP) is a rare variant of lichen planus that is characterized by chronic, painful, and disabling ulcerations. Ulcerative lichen planus has been known to be resistant to many ...
Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic inﬂammatory mucosal lesion and systemic disease. In OLP, reticular type is the most common presentation of the disease. However, little is known about it. The a...
Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic inflammatory mucosal disorder and potentially oral premalignant lesion affecting the stratified squamous epithelia. In OLP, reticular type is the most common clin...
Lichen planus (LP) is an inflammatory skin disease with unknown aetiology. Activation by pathogen-associated molecular patterns or environmental stimuli may activate some components of inflammasomes t...
Lichen planus is a common, usually intensely pruritic, symmetrical, papulosquamous dermatosis. Direct immunofluorescence studies in patients with lichen planus shows deposition of multiple immunoglobu...
Lichen planus is a chronic cutaneous and mucosal disease characterized by the infiltration of cluster of differentiation (CD) CD8 T lymphocytes, localized under the basal membrane and asso...
The purpose of this study is to find out how safe and effective an investigational drug called alefacept (amevive) is for the treatment of moderate to severe erosive mucosal lichen planus....
Background and hypothesis. Oral erosive lichen planus (OELP) is a severe form of mucosal lichen planus. Lesions often induce intense pain and limit feeding. Its course is chronic with flar...
This is a research study whose purpose is to test the effectiveness of etanercept (Enbrel) in the treatment of moderate to severe lichen planus. No studies have been done on the effective...
The lichen planus is a mucocutaneous disease of unknown etiology with an incidence of 1-2%, that affects in 30-70% of cases either the mucosa of the mouth, or partly in combination with in...
Oral lesions accompanying cutaneous lichen planus or often occurring alone. The buccal mucosa, lips, gingivae, floor of the mouth, and palate are usually affected (in a descending order of frequency). Typically, oral lesions consist of radiating white or gray, velvety, threadlike lines, arranged in a reticular pattern, at the intersection of which there may be minute, white, elevated dots or streaks (Wickham's striae).

A method for removing lesions from gastrointestinal MUCOUS MEMBRANES. The mucosal tissue with the lesion is elevated by injecting a solution into the submucosal layer underneath it. The elevated tissue with the lesion is then cut out.
A variant of bullous erythema multiforme. It ranges from mild skin and mucous membrane lesions to a severe, sometimes fatal systemic disorder. Ocular symptoms include ulcerative conjunctivitis, keratitis, iritis, uveitis, and sometimes blindness. The cause of the disease is unknown.
Uptake of substances into the body via the mucosal surfaces (MUCOUS MEMBRANE) of the oral cavity.
Nonsusceptibility to the pathogenic effects of foreign microorganisms or antigenic substances as a result of antibody secretions of the mucous membranes. Mucosal epithelia in the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and reproductive tracts produce a form of IgA (IMMUNOGLOBULIN A, SECRETORY) that serves to protect these ports of entry into the body.
