Lichen nitidus is a rare dermatosis of unknown origin, characterized by the presence of shiny, pinpoint, skin-colored papules that may be asymptomatic or slightly pruriginous. Generalized form of lichen nitidus, especially, associated with oral involvement is even rare. We report a 37 yearold woman who had generalized lichen nitidus with oral involvement.
