A critical review of the literature was undertaken to determine if there is valid data to support the contention that oral lichen planus represents a disease with significant potential for malignant degeneration. Although there are reports alleging such a relationship, there is insufficient documented evidence to state with any degree of confidence that oral lichen planus, in itself, represents a premalignant state.
