Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus of the oral mucosa.

Author information

Department of Oral Medicine (Oral Pathology, Stomatology and Radiology), School of Dentistry, Federal University of Goiás, Brazil.


Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus (LSA) is a chronic, benign, depigmenting disease of the skin and mucous membranes most frequently affecting the female genitalia. Involvement of the oral mucosa without concurrent genital or skin lesions has been reported only occasionally in the literature. In view of the rarity of reported cases, one lesion affecting only the labial mucocutaneous area is presented along with a description of the disease's clinical and histopathological findings.
