The affected age range varies around the world, and the disease is rare in children. Smokers and patients who consume alcohol have a higher prevalence of Oral lichen planus. Oral lichen planus can be caused or triggered by a genetic malfunction or by environmental factors. Although the etiology remains unknown, the immunological system plays a substantial role, and several factors are well known, such as psychological stress, anxiety and drug intake. Oral lichen planus may be associated with some systemic diseases, including hepatitis C virus infection, hypertension, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction and graft-versus host disease.
