Presence of intact bullae and absence of erosions clinically and subepithelial cleft histopathologically ruled out pemphigus vulgaris. Definition, diagnostic criteria, pathogenic factors, medical treatment, and prognostic indicators. No warranties are given. Histopathological features in the present case, showed subepithelial cleft and basal cell degeneration, along with band of intense chronic desquamativr cell infiltrate consisting predominantly of plasma cells and areas of hemorrhage.

Although its etiology is unknown OLP is sometimes associated with other medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, graft vs host disease, HIV infection, Hepatitis C infection, and psychological stress.
