The testing involves special microscopic tests and pathologists with special training in skin diseases (dermatopathologists). Mayo Clinic has the ability to perform complex pathology testing, if needed.
  • Experience. Each year, Mayo Clinic doctors diagnose and treat hundreds of people with oral lichen planus.
  • Comprehensive care. Lichen planus can affect other mucous membranes, including the esophagus, genital areas and eyes. Mayo Clinic specialists work together to manage any complications of your oral lichen planus.
