ABSTRACT

Lichen planus (LP) is an autoimmune cell-mediated mucocutaneous condition which is mostly chronic and inflammatory in nature. It is commonly affecting adults but rarely can be seen in children. The purpose of this study is to report a case series of Oral Lichen Planus in three paediatric patients with age range of 10 to 12 years involving the tongue and buccal mucosa. On clinical evaluation, typical white reticular striated lesions in tongue and buccal mucosa were observed with or without cutaneous lesions. Diagnosis was made based on clinical examination and histopathological features. Active treatment was started. The patients were evaluated on regular periodic basis. Although L.P. is rarely reported in childhood, it should be considered in a differential diagnosis of hyperkeratotic and/or erosive lesions of the oral mucosa in children.
