S13 of GS is the recurrence of infections, specially pulmonar infections and bronchiectasis. Another frequent complication is chronic diahrrea associated to malabsorption. Case report: A 64 year old male with thymoma history was referred to the HOUB by the Catalan Health Institut. The pacient had undergone surgery to remove the tumor se-veral years ago and has been in treatment ever since. He presented several oral lesions compatible with oral lichen planus in both buccal mucosae and the

Due to the clinical presentation and after the physical exploration, we prescribed a formula with triamcinolone acid during one week. We also asked for a recent analytic checkup and took pictures of all the lesions, and told him to come visit us for a follow-up and biopsies if needed. In the second visit there was a discreet improvement, the analysis were correct and we performed an incisional biopsy of an oral lesion. The histopatological result indicated it was "compatible with oral lichen planus". Conclusion: In the available literature they say there is a higher risk of autoinmune lesions in GS patients, oral lichen planus is one of them. However, there is not a clear association between the two conditions. We need more studies to clarify if there is a connection between oral lichen planus and Good's syndrome.
