  • Lichen planus

    Lichen planus is an inflammatory condition which affects the skin and mucous membranes. It is a T-cell–mediated autoimmune disease in which autocytotoxic CD8+ T cells trigger apoptosis of oral epithelial cells. On the skin, lichen planus usually appears as purplish, often itchy, flat-topped bumps. In mouth, vagina and other areas covered by a mucous membrane, lichen planus forms lacy white patches, sometimes with painful sores. There is no cure for Lichen planus. Treatment for the skin may include Antihistamines, Corticosteroides, Retinoic acid.
