Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Went to the dermatologist today and he said he thinks it may be Lichen Planus. He did do a biopsy but now we wait. Well I did some research on Lichen Planus and here is what I found.

******It is surprising that association of cutaneous LP and celiac disease has never been reported previously, although both are not very uncommon and are T-cell-mediated autoimmune disorders. Perhaps, the different genetic linkages of LP (HLA-DQ1) and celiac disease (HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8) may explain this.******

(((( THANK YOU DQ1 GENE..... Once again will miss the ofical diagnosis)))) :(
