oral lichenplanus
Jun 13, 2006

I read a question about oral lichenplanus. I had oral lichenplanus for 18 months. My Dr. of Oral Medicine determined that Viramune was the most likely cause. I had mouth photos published in New England Journal of Medicine. Within 2 weeks of stopping the Viramune, the lichenplanus totally cleared up and has not returned 1 year later. Hope this helps others with this problem. JJC..

Response from Dr. Henry

Thanks for reminding me of the association of nevirapine with lichen planus. KH
