Abstract

Between 1960 and 1969, the diagnosis of oral lichen planus was made on 326 patients. 84% of those patients were seen at repeated follow up visits. Of the 326 patients examined, 62.5% were women, mostly between 41 and 70 yr old. 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.
