Lichen planus pigmentosus is a condition characterized by persistent and asymptomatic slaty-gray pigmentation, predominantly in the face. Two patients, aged 11-year-old female and 35-year-old male, reported to the Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology with burning sensation on taking spicy foods. On examination, only extensive symmetric brownish-black pigmentation of the buccal mucosa was observed bilaterally. The workup and management of these cases are presented along with the relevant review of literature.
