Hypertrophic lichen planus (HLP) is a chronic variant of lichen planus with an estimated risk of 0.4% developing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in later years. We report the case of a 12-year- old boy with history of hypertrophic lichen planus since 4 years of age, with malignant transformation into squamous cell carcinoma along with lymph node metastasis.
