A sixty-seven-year old female patient presented with an oral lichenoid reaction, which appeared two months after she started to take alendronate to treat osteoporosis. After withdrawal of the offending drug, the lesions subsided within three months, and at the follow-up visit one and a half years later, the patient was free of any oral lesions. Patient refused taking of oral biopsy specimen and re-challenge test. It might be that oral lichenoid reaction was caused by alendronate.
