Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a relatively common inflammatory mucocutaneous disorder that frequently involves the oral mucosa. There are many etiological factors, and some among them are stress, diabetes mellitus, and hypothyroidism. An important complication of OLP is the development of oral squamous cell carcinoma, which led the World Health Organization to classify OLP as a potentially malignant disorder. This article reports a multivariant (reticular, erosive, and papular) case of lichen planus that has affected a 40-year-old medically compromised female who was managed successfully and still under follow-up.
