Reverse Koebnerization in a linear oral lichenoid lesion: A case report
The spectacle of Koebner’s phenomenon (KP) is interesting in that trauma precipitates a subset of pathologically distinct conditions, indicating the subtle interplay between sensitization and dermato-mucosal integrity. KP is interesting because, if factors initiating it are controlled, then it may be possible to prevent these debilitating conditions through induction of reverse Koebnerization. Herein, we present a report of a patient with an erosive lesion, localized to the occlusal plane on buccal and lingual mucosa, that interestingly subsided following 1 week after a dental scaling procedure. This report analytically describes the role of dental calculus and cuspal trauma as important triggers surrounding the genesis of oral lichenoid lesion and oral lichen planus. An engaging discussion on these closely related enigmatic entities forms the central theme of this report.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
