Clin Exp Dermatol 2018 Feb 13. Epub 2018 Feb 13.

Department of Dermatology, Davis Medical Center, University of California-Davis, Sacramento, CA, USA.

Background: Lichen planus (LP) is a T-cell mediated autoimmune disorder of unknown aetiology that affects the skin, nails, oral and genital mucous membranes. Conventionally, oral LP (OLP) is diagnosed through clinical assessment and histopathological confirmation by oral biopsy.

Aim: To explore the use of time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy (TRFS) to detect fluorescence lifetime changes between lesional OLP and perilesional normal mucosa. Read More

Clinicopathologic Correlation of White, Non scrapable Oral Mucosal Surface Lesions: A Study of 100 Cases.

J Clin Diagn Res 2016 Feb 1;10(2):ZC38-41. Epub 2016 Feb 1.

White lesions in the oral cavity: clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment.

Semin Cutan Med Surg 2015 Dec;34(4):161-70

Departments of Orofacial Sciences, Radiation Oncology, and Pathology, and the Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of California, San Francisco, California, USA.

White lesions in the oral cavity are common and have multiple etiologies, some of which are also associated with dermatological disease. While most intraoral white lesions are benign, some are premalignant and/or malignant at the time of clinical presentation, making it extremely important to accurately identify and appropriately manage these lesions. Due to their similar clinical appearances, it may be difficult sometimes to differentiate benign white lesions from their premalignant/malignant counterparts. Read More

Oral frictional hyperkeratosis (morsicatio buccarum): an entity to be considered in the differential diagnosis of white oral mucosal lesions.

Skinmed 2012 Mar-Apr;10(2):114-5

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA.

A 55-year-old man presented with desquamating lesions on his bilateral buccal mucosa intermittently for approximately 3 years. The alteration in texture within his mouth created an uncomfortable sensation and, at times, the lesions spontaneously peeled away requiring him to spit repeatedly. The patient denied any history of trauma, cheek biting, or use of tobacco products. Read More

Morsicatio mucosae oris--a chronic oral frictional keratosis, not a leukoplakia.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2009 Jan;67(1):140-6

Department of Oral Medicine, Infection, and Immunity, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA 02115, USA.

Purpose: Morsicatio mucosae oris (MMO) presents as white papules and plaques that may resemble leukoplakia, and are often biopsied. The objective of this study is to document the clinical features and histopathology of MMO and to reevaluate the prevalence of dysplasia and/or cancer when this frictional keratosis is removed from the category of leukoplakia.

Materials And Methods: Cases that were submitted to a single laboratory with a provisional diagnosis of "leukoplakia," "hyperkeratosis," or "white lesion" were evaluated. Read More
