A study points to the importance of periodontal treatment to control the symptoms and discomfort of this painful oral condition. Medscape Dental &Oral Health
In this report, the authors report 2 cases of LP that presented primarily as hypopigmented macules in 2 African American men. The first patient presented with hypopigmented macules on face and scalp as well as trunk and extremities. The second patient presented with hypopigmented macules on scalp with associated alopecia. Histopathological examination from both patients showed features of LP. The authors propose a new variant of LP that presents acutely as hypopigmented lesions.

CONCLUSIONS: During antihypertensive treatment, several dermatological reactions may occur. Clinicians should inform their patients of the increased risk of cutaneous lesions associated with the use of these drugs, and perform periodic examination of the skin.

ConclusionThese lichenoid lesions were solitary plaques located most commonly on the tongue and gingiva, common sites for leukoplakia with 54.1% exhibiting OED. As such, these lesions more likely represent leukoplakia with a LHR rather than OLP. Clinicopathologic correlation is essential for accurate diagnosis.
We present a case of PCG in a 13 year old female patient which clinically presented as generalized desquamative gingivitis involving the facial aspects of the attached and marginal gingiva that persisted despite substituting to a non flavored dentifrice and failure to elicit any suspected drug or food allergies. Dermatologic patch testing proved positive for Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (IPBC), a water based preservative or biocide used in personal care products. Microscopically, there was an intense inflammatory infiltrate in the lamina propria composed predominantly of mature plasma cells. Immunohistochemistry and in situ...
ConclusionSince CUS has overlapping clinical, histological, and immunofluorescence features with lichen planus and vesiculobullous diseases, clinicians and pathologists should consider this unusual, but significant, entity whenever oral ulcerative diseases with mixed features are encountered.
This study aimed to evaluate the immunohistochemical expression of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor (TSHR) in healthy oral mucosa and in OLP lesions of individuals with and without HT.
Oral cancer may be preceded by Potentially malignant lesions such as leukoplakia, erythroplakia, stomatitis nicotina, oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) and erosive lichen planus(LP). Oral Epithelial dysplasia (OED) is an important predictor of malignant potential. According to WHO 2017, the three tiered grading reliability can be improved by Binary grading system of high&low risk. So the aim of this retrospective study was verify the applicability of the binary grading system for OED in our institution.
