The highest frequency at sex distribution is female, it form (73.3 %). The highest number of oral lichen planus types at reticular form, it form (86.6 %). The highest number of distribution LP at other site of body in OLP patients at cutaneous part all over the body, it form (33.3 %). The lowest frequency at nail and this consider as a rare case, it form (3.3 %).
