Background Clinical and histopathological differential diagnosis is usually impossible in drug-induced lichen planus (LP) and idiopathic LP. Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, which is widely used for its analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effects. To the best of our knowledge, two case reports on naproxen-induced LP have been reported.
