Oral Lichen Planus Treated With Plasma Rich in Growth Factors
The use of plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) is a treatment for erosive oral lichen planus (OLP) resistant to steroid therapy. An anonymous database at a clinical center was reviewed to collect demographic data, lesion type, treatment protocol, number of infiltrations, pain score, and healing time of the lesions. Fifteen patients were included in this study. All patients were diagnosed with erosive OLP. The lesions in all patients were refractory to steroid therapy (topical and systemic). Results showed that the use of plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) could be a promising alternative for the treatment of erosive OLP refractory to steroid therapy, though new prospective studies are needed to confirm these preliminary observations.
