Oral lichen planus is a chronic T-cell mediated inflammatory disease, which is associated with increased risk of developing oral squamous cell carcinoma. Epithelial to mesenchymal transition is a phys...
The pathogenesis of lichen planus (LP) is mostly autoimmune, while psychological and infectious factors are recognized to trigger or aggravate the disease. An association with diabetes is reported. Ou...
This study was aimed at examining the role of Tenascin-C in T cell trafficking in Oral Lichen Planus (OLP).
Oral Lichen Planus (OLP) is a common inflammatory disease of unknown cause that knows alsoas a premalignant condition. Recent studies contributed nutritional factors to the pathogenesis of many autoim...
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...
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...
Thirty patients will be recruited from the outpatient clinic of the faculty of dentistry.fifteen systemically healthy individuals with normal mucosa and fifteen atrophic/erosive oral liche...
Treatment of oral lichen planus is challenging. Diverse therapeutic modalities have been suggested, but a permanent cure is not yet available. In some oral lichen planus patients, topical...
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).

An oral retinoid used in the treatment of keratotic genodermatosis, lichen planus, and psoriasis. Beneficial effects have also been claimed in the prophylaxis of epithelial neoplasia. The compound may be teratogenic.
A noninvasive diagnostic technique that enables an experienced clinician to perform direct microscopic examination of the surface and architecture of pigmented SKIN lesions. The four major dermoscopic criteria are ABCD: asymmetry (A), borders (B), colors (C), and different structural components (D) providing a semiquantitative scoring system for each lesion.
A light microscopic technique in which only a small spot is illuminated and observed at a time. An image is constructed through point-by-point scanning of the field in this manner. Light sources may be conventional or laser, and fluorescence or transmitted observations are possible.
Conditions in which there is histological damage to the lower epidermis along with a grouped chronic inflammatory infiltrate in the papillary dermis disturbing the interface between the epidermis and dermis. LICHEN PLANUS is the prototype of all lichenoid eruptions. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p398)
