原始语种摘要: Objectives(#br)The objectives of this study were to correlate a semiquantitative scoring system for oral lichen planus (OLP) with pain before versus after treatment and to analyze sites of involvement and candidal status of patients in a retrospective study.(#br)Study Design(#br)Reticulation/keratosis, erythema, and ulceration (REU) scores and numerical rating scale (NRS) for pain were used. Correlation was tested using Spearman rank correlation, and the change in REU and NRS scores using the paired t test.(#br)Results(#br)One hundred fifteen patients were evaluable with 55 follow-up visits. Pain showed positive correlation with the total weighted score ( r = .40), erythema ( r = .35), ulceration ( r = .31), and reticulation scores ( r = .29), all at P < .005. There was improvement in REU...
