Lichenoid Dysplasia (LD) is often regarded as lichen planus with dysplastic features, as it mimics lichen planus clinically and histologically. Although it has been confirmed that these two entities are entirely different with not so similar etiopathogenesis, yet the confusion still exists. The separation between the two is of utmost importance as each of them has their own prognosis and treatment plan. We report one such case, where a 51-year-old male with excessive burning sensation had similar clinical picture as that of lichen planus but was histologically diagnosed as LD.
