Lichen planus is a chronic autoimmune disorder of mucosa and skin, affecting mainly females in the third decade of life and is rare in the young age group. The etiology of Lichen planus is still unknown with certain triggering factors which include mental stress, medicines, and systemic disorders. Oral Lichen planus is a painful disorder that mainly involves the buccal mucosa of the oral cavity. The reticular pattern is most common while an atrophic and erosive type of oral lichen planus is less common. Here we present a case of a lichen planus (reticular, pigmented, and annular types) involving buccal mucosa bilaterally, hard palate, and tongue without any cutaneous lesions in an 18-year-old female patient with a meticulous followup. Lichen planus patients need consistent follow up and physician reassurance in addition to medicinal management.
