Abstract Ten patients are reported suffering from oral lichen planus (OLP) associated with chronic liver diseases linked to HCV. All patients were affected by varieties of erosive oral lichen planus. In six of these 10 patients the diagnosis of HCV was made as a result of the OLP diagnosis and four of them had unknown, but severe, chronic liver disease. These preliminary data support the possible existence of a relationship between oral erosive lichen planus and HCV infection.
