PMID:  2404699     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Lichen planus is a mucocutaneous disorder well known to both dermatologists and dentists. Traditional belief holds that oral lichen planus predisposes to the development of squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity. We present a case that illustrates such a malignant transformation in a patient who smoked and had actinically damaged skin.
