    Efficacy of oral sirolimus as salvage therapy in refractory lichen planus associated with immune deficiency.
    Br J Dermatol 2018 Mar 24. Epub 2018 Mar 24.
    Dermatology Department, AP-HP Hôpital Saint-Louis, Paris.
    Lichen planus (LP) remains often difficult-to-treat in its chronic, severe and erosive forms, requiring use of immunomodulatory (acitretin, PUVA, and extracorporeal photochemotherapy (EPC)) or off label immunosuppressive strategies (cyclosporine, azathioprine). However, the pathogenic role of an HPV-specific T-cell response in chronic LP, and the increased risk of neoplasia, especially in its severe mucosal forms, both support the use of T-cell-targeting immunosuppressants with antineoplastic attributes, such as mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors .
