Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a common oral inflammatory disease affecting about 1-2% of the general adult population. As with European families who are diagnosed with OLP, the Chinese family who we studied was diagnosed with a severe form of oral reticular and erosive lesions; moreover, two of the five affected individuals developed oral cancer at an early age.
