Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the incidence of metabolic syndrome and lipid profile in patients with lichen planus. The indicators of IR including HOMA-IR and C-peptide values were remarkably elevated in the LP group and there were no differences in the levels total cholesterol, triglyceride, LDL, serum Apo B-100, and small dense LDL between the groups.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Lichen Planus (LP) is an idiopathic inflammatory dermatosis involving skin, mucosa, hair follicles, and nails. Increased insulin resistance (IR) and dyslipidemia can be seen in LP. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between LP and metabolic syndrome, atherogenicity, and dyslipidemia.
