This month's edition of the Archives of Dermatology has several articles that focus on management and therapeutics for oral mucosal disease. These include a prospective study on the use of pentoxifylline for aphthous ulcers by Thornhill et al1; a retrospective study of medications used in the management of oral lichen planus (OLP) by Torti et al2; and an article by Passeron et al3 discussing a newer agent for control of OLP—pimecrolimus cream.
