Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a chronic mucocutaneous inflammatory disease involving T cells-mediated immunity. Several drugs have been used to treat OLP, specially the erosive and ulcerative forms, with varying results. The aim of this paper was to describe and discuss one clinical case of erosive oral lichen planus treated with systemic corticosteroids that resulted in Cushing´s syndrome that maintained with topical corticosteroid.
