ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 72-year-old woman with a history of burning mouth sensation. A biopsy of the buccal mucosa was conducted which displayed histopathologic characteristics synonymous with oral lichen planus, a chronic autoimmune disease which affects the scalp, nails, mucous membranes and skin. It highlights that currently no cure is available for this disease condition.

    Objectives: Hashimoto's thyroiditis as well as lichen planus has been associated to a number of disorders, generally of auto-immune origin. A novel possible association between oral lichen planus (OLP) and Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is here proposed on the basis of a cross-sectional survey....

    Background: Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic and T cell-mediated autoimmune disease whose immunopathogenesis may involve antigen-presentation, T cells activation and migration as well as keratinocytes apoptosis.
