PMID:  9262985     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Lichen planus is a common skin and mucosal disease, with very rare symptomatic oesophageal involvement. We report a case of painful dysphagia due to oesophageal lichen planus in a 60-year-old woman who also had oral, cutaneous and genital lichen planus lesions. Steroid treatment produced considerable improvement of all lesions and a rapid symptomatic remission.
