Abstract

Lichen planus is a papulosquamous disorder with distinctive clinical features. Until now the aetiology has been largely unknown, however, several postulations have been proposed. The immunopathogenic basis has been most favoured. We report a case of a 13-year-old girl who presented with Lichen planus after receiving the second dose of hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccination. This report, similar to earlier reports, appears to support the immunopathogenic basis of Lichen planus.
