Abstract: The habit of chewing khat (Catha edulis) for its euphoric effect has been historically limited to east Africa and southwestern Arabian Peninsula. Two cases of severe oral mucosal ulcerations which occurred after chewing khat are reported . The histopathological examinations of specimens from both patients revealed microscopic features which were considered as a typical lichen planus or lichenoid drug eruption.
