Oral Manifest
Mar 10, 2002

Is lichen planus a manifestation of hiv? I am not sure, but I think I may have it. I have not had any fever or anything just the lesions with white rings around them and my tongue is painful at times.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Lichen planus is a common problem and is not particularly associated with HIV infection.
