Between 1960 and. 1969, the diagnosis of oral lichen planus was made on 326 patients. Eighty-four per cent of those patients were seen at repeated follow-up visits. Of the 326 patients examined, 62.5 were women, mostly between 41 and 70 years of age. The oral lesions caused symptoms in 90 % of the cases. Psychic stress appeared to be an important etiologic factor. Of the clinical types of lichen planus, the reticular form was the most frequent. In this and in the erosive type, skin lesions were relatively infrequent. The best results were obtained by combined methods of treatment, Carcinoma developed in one case.
