Abstract

Background and Design: Lichen planus (LP) is a chronic and enflammatory cutaneous disease. Numereous diseases and agents have been accused in the etiology of LP. The materials used in dental treatment are one of these factors. We aimed to compare the results of dental series patch test in LP patients with and without oral involvement to determine whether the dental restorative materials play a role in the etiology of LP and to detect the effect of dental materials in cases where there is no oral involvement.
