    Lichen planus (LP) is a common mucocutaneous disease of unknown aetiology withvarious geographical prevalence, may be related to some serious disorders such as squamous cell carcinoma and often ... remains underdiagnosed. The aim of this retrospective study was to thoroughly determine localization and clinicalcharacteristics of LP lesions in a cohort of 173 Slovenian patients inassociation to the presence of accompanying symptoms and history of potential stressful events. Isolated cutaneous lesions of LP were found in 56.6% and isolated oral LP in 3.5% of patients. Thirty-four percent presented orocutaneous LP, whereas genitocutaneous LP was noted in 1.2%, orogenito-cutaneous LP in 4% and orogenital LP in 0.5% of patients. Underlyingstressful events were noted in 36 out of 137 (26.3%) patients. Despite obviously visible localization of the lesions various medical specialists should be familiar with LP and thoroughly examine the complete skin, as well as oral, genital and anal mucosa in each LP patient to avoid a delay in diagnosing this disease and possibly disclose a much serious underlying condition. Psychological support should be offered, if needed.
