Introduction: Lymphomatoid Papulosis (LyP) is a lymphoproliferative disorder with typical histopathological criteria and a spontaneous regression. Only few cases of oral involvement have been reported. We wondered about their clinical characteristics and their association with lymphoma. Method: This systematic review is conducted according to the PRISMA statement. The Oxford Centre for Evidence Based Medicine table (OCEBM) and the scoring from the National Agency for Accreditation and Assessment in Health (ANAES) was assigned to each study. Results: We have included 16 references. LyP can occur at any age with a female predilection. Oral lesions were unique ulcer and tongue was mostly affected. Histological types A, and C were dominant and LyP resolved spontaneously. 1 case was associated with a lymphoma. Discussion: Cutaneous LyP more affects men and are mostly classified as type A while those orals are type A or C. Oral LyP is probably a progressive lesion whose evolution is not illustrated by the histological aspect which often reflects only the initial acute period. Conclusion: Our literature review has shown that the epidemiological aspects between oral and cutaneous LyP are not the same. LyP may be associated with an increased risk of developing systemic lymphoproliferative disorders.
