On the other hand, B and C hepatitis are of the five most common death causes, resulting in significant disease spread problems among dentists. As a result, the relationship between these two disorders has been recently investigated.

The information about all white lesions that couldn't be scraped was recorded on a questionnaire for each patient. To analyze the data, t and Fisher tests were used.
Results: Two hundred and eighty nine patients were MBS Ag" 223 were HCVAb", 12 were positive for both types of hepatitis and 23 were cyrotic. From among these patients, 3 subjects were with oral Lichen plannus (0.6%), one belonged to HBS Ag1 group (0.35%), (P=0.38) and two patients belonged to HCV Ab' (0.9%),(P=0.44). These results showed no statistically significant relationship between Lichen plannus and B, C hepatitis.
