Serum immunouglobulin levels were studied in 41 histopathologically proven idiopathic lichen planus patients and 25 normal healthy individuals. No difference was observed in IgG levels, though, IgA and IgM levels were significantly reduced 'm patients with lichen planus as compared to normal controls. There was no association between the mucosal involvement and the reduced levels of IgA and IgM. These results suggest the possibility of humoral immuno-deficiency, in lichen planus patients.
