NIH Rare Diseases:42 Leukoplakia is a condition in which thickened, white patches form on the tongue, gums, inside of the cheek, or sometimes on the outer female genitals. although the sores can vary in appearance, they are usually white or gray; thick; and slightly raised with a hard surface. the condition is thought to be caused by irritation, but the cause is not always known. tobacco is considered to be the main cause of its development in the mouth. most patches are benign, but a small percentage show early signs of cancer. removing the source of irritation may cause the condition to go away, but surgery to remove the sore(s) may be necessary in some cases. last updated: 5/21/2012

MalaCards based summary: Leukoplakia is related to oral leukoplakia and lichen planus. An important gene associated with Leukoplakia is KRT4 (keratin 4), and among its related pathways are Glutathione metabolism and Platinum Pathway, Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics. The compounds methylchloride and drugs for treatment of tuberculosis have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include tongue, liver and prostate, and related mouse phenotype homeostasis/metabolism.
