Abstract

We report the third case of lichen planus (LP) following COVID-19 BNT162b2 vaccination in a 59-year-old woman with previous LP. The reactivation of LP in patients with dormant LP, suggests possible vaccine-induced immune dysregulation. We suggest that the already described vaccine-induced up-regulation of Th1 response, may play a relevant role.
