Because there is no curative therapy for OLP, the primary goal for symtomatic patients is palliative. Treatment modalities include the use of: topical, systemic and intralesional corticosteroids; topical and systemic retinoids, topical cyclosoporine; topical tacrolimus; azathioprine; phototherapy and surgical procedures.
