Abstract

Recently, a clinical relationship between oral lichen planus (OLP) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection has been suggested, but the role of this virus on the course of OLP is unknown. We report an unusual lingual localisation of verrucous carcinoma arising in a patient with histologically confirmed OLP and HCV infection diagnosed with second generation enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and recombinant immunoblot assay. Serum HCV-RNA detected using nested reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) confirm HCV replication. No classical risk factors associated with verrucous carcinoma were present.
