Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic inflammatory disease of about adult onset and unknown etiology. There are variable forms of this mucocutaneous condition, which at times make recognition difficult. Remissions are infrequent and there is no definite curative treatment. Because of an association with oral carcinoma all patients with OLP should be carefully evaluated and followed periodically. The purpose of present study was to achieve better understanding of etiological, clinical and histopathologic characteristics of OLP and also to evaluate the curative response by different treatment modalities in various forms of OLP.
