Immunologically mediated mucocutaneous diseases constitute a large group of oral mucosal disorders that compromise the quality of life of patients due to their chronicity. The treatment of these disorders should not only be directed to bring relief from symptoms but also towards treating the underlying immune dysregulation, prevent recurrences, and preserve organ integrity and function. These disorders are largely treated by immunosuppressants. Challenge in treating these disorders lies in existing comorbidities, frequent relapses or short disease-free intervals, and long-term use of medication and their complications. This review focusses on newer immunosuppressants and their role in oral mucosal disorders.
