Abstract

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a minimally invasive approach that has shown promising results in management of oral, head and neck lesions. PDT can be used alone or in combination with other conventional treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy). Oral Lichen Planus (OLP) is a mucosal and cutaneous chronic disease characterized by an autoimmune insult of basal keratinocytes. We aim to evaluate the feasibility of topical toluidine blue-mediated PDT for the treatment of oral cavity multifocal homogeneous white lesions by oral lichen planus without dysplastic features.
