Association between oral lichen planus and hepatitis C virus infection among Kashmir population

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Altaf Hussain Chalkoo and Shamshad Begum
ABSTRACT:Group 1 consisted of 175 patients with oral lichen planus lesions. Prevalance of HCV infection was carried out. Group 2 was composed of 24 patients with known and confirmed diagnosis of HCV infection. In this group prevalence of OLP lesion was carried out. Prevalence of HCV infection in oral lichen planus patients (Group 1) was found in only 1.7% of cases and overall frequency of OLP in HCV patients (group 2) was 4.1%. No correlation was seen in both groups because the overall frequencies of both diseases were very less and insignificant with their respective control groups.
