Oral lichen planus is common mucocutaneous condition involving skin, mucosa or both. Although exact etiology is unknown, an immune mediated pathogenesis is thought to be responsible for lichen planus. Oral lichen planus can occur with some systemic conditions also. Grinspan’s syndrome shows association between diabetes mellitus, hypertension and lichen planus. The causative factors are multifactorial such as OLR (oral lichenoid reaction) caused by drugs, exacerbation during stressful conditions, autoimmune mechanism, contact hypersensitivity and association of hepatitis C. The present case discuses about middle aged female with long history of diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Initially she had poor control of blood pressure and blood sugar which led to exacerbation of oral lichen planus. Oral prophylaxis to control local factors, proper monitoring of blood pressure and blood sugar, stress management, appropriate local application with corticosteroid definitely help her to keep it to lower level.
