Dermatologic diseases are often associated with oral manifestations and sometimes the oral lesions are the sole presenting features of the disease. Diagnosing a dermatologic disease based on its oral manifestations is a challenge, especially in the absence of associated cutaneous lesions. Lichen planus is a common dermatologic disease that affects the oral mucosa in the adult population. While some patients have concomitant oral and cutaneous lesions, the oral lesions are persistent and seen for years together even after the cutaneous lesions have healed. Herein, we present two cases of oral lichen planus seen as an ulcerated lesion on the lower lip which is an uncommon manifestation of this otherwise common disease.
