While treating patients with oral lichen planus (OLP) or oral lichenoid lesions (OLL) in the New York University College of Dentistry Oral Medicine clinic, we noted that many patients were taking anti-hyperlipidemic and / or thyroid medications. Therefore, we decided to determine the incidence of these medications taken in patients with OLP or OLL.
