A universal diagnostic criteria for oral lichen planus: An exigency!

Shankargouda Patil, Roopa S Rao, Sanketh DS, Sachin Sarode, Gargi S. Sarode

Abstract


For years, dissentions and debates on the malignant transformation of oral lichen planus (OLP) have been sparked not only by a lack of accurate diagnostic criteria but also due to the failure on our part in not following single universal one. In this short communication, we try to reiterate its importance with the goal of making the clinicians and pathologists aware of its serious implications.


Keywords
