Validity, reliability and optimisation of the TOPICOP questionnaire for oral lichen planus.

Conclusions: The optimised TOPICOP scale proved valuable as a PROM in OLP. TCs phobia can be a real consideration in OLP, nonetheless, it does not appear to be an impediment to treatment adherence. PMID: 32189543 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Stress is considered one of the etiological factors in the causation, progression, and recurrence of this disease. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the levels of serum cortisol, anxiety, and depression in patients with symptomatic OLP and to corr...

rd FJ Abstract Pain and discomfort are important symptoms in dermatology. The aim of this cross-sectional, multicentre study was to describe the prevalence of pain/discomfort and its associations in patients with several dermatological conditions across 13 European countries. The outcome was the prevalence of pain/discomfort according to a question of the EQ-5D questionnaire. Data collected from November 2011 to February 2013 were complete for 3,509 consecutive outpatients. Moderate or extreme pain/discomfort was reported by 55.5% of patients and 31.5% of controls with no skin conditions. The highest proportions w...

Many factors have been studied in order to identify the causes of oral lichen planus (OLP), such as use of drugs, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, and hepatitis C virus infection. Some researchers have been trying to find a connection between psychological states and OLP. The authors report a case of a 36-year-old female patient who went to the stomatology care service complaining of a "white ball on the tongue," which was causing her some discomfort over a year. During anamnesis, the patient reported taking lithium and bupropion (treating depression and anxiety, respectively).

Abstract Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic immune-mediated, inflammatory, and psychosomatic condition that frequently affects the oral mucosa in a typical bilateral pattern, often noticed in middle-aged females.1 It involves the buccal, lingual, and/or gingival mucosa and is also an oral potentially malignant disorder (OPMD). OLP is associated with etiological factors ranging from viruses like hepatitis C, systemic factors like thyroid disorders,2 local factors like dental plaque, calculus and cuspal trauma, to deep rooted, often underestimated, psychological triggers. OLP is routinely encountered in oral medi...

Authors: Manczyk B, Gołda J, Biniak A, Reszelewska K, Mazur B, Zając K, Bińczak P, Chomyszyn-Gajewska M, Oruba Z Abstract The pathogenesis of oral lichen planus (OLP) remains to be fully elucidated; however, certain psychoneurological factors may influence the onset and exacerbation of OLP. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the intensity of negative emotions in patients with OLP. A cross-sectional, questionnaire-based study was performed. The sample consisted of 52 subjects, comprising 26 patients with OLP (OLP group) and 26 controls (CTRL group). The Depression Anxiety Stress Scale 21 (DASS-21) was us...

Abstract Background and objective: Cortisol, as the main human glucocorticoid, is considered to be a biological marker of stress and anxiety. Since it is known that oral lichen planus (OLP) can appear and worsen during stressful events, cortisol levels have been previously studied in OLP patients. The present meta-analysis aims to assess the salivary concentration of cortisol in OLP patients compared to healthy controls. Materials and methods: Web of Science, PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Scopus databases were searched up to October 2018. The RevMan 5.3 software was used with the mean difference (MD) and 95% confi...

ConclusionGreater severity of OLP and OLL seems to be associated with increased levels of anxiety, higher scores of oral health impact profile, and decreased QoL.Clinical relevancePatients with severe OLP/OLL may benefit from additional therapeutic treatments, such as psychological and/or psychiatric management, concomitant to treatment specific to oral lesions.

CONCLUSIONS: Any patient with OLP should undergo a thorough history and examination to investigate potential extraoral manifestations. The fact that 37 patients with OLP in this patient series were identified with simultaneous involvement at more than one site highlights the need for thorough evaluation and multidisciplinary approaches to this disease.
