Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of Ignatia homeopathic 30C in management of oral lichen planus (OLP).
Methods and materials: In this single blind randomized control clinical trial, 30 consecutive patients with oral lesions consistent clinically and histologically with erosive and/or atrophic OLP were recruited. The patients were randomly divided into two groups to receive Ignatia or placebo. They were treated for 4 months.
Results: Mean lesion sizes and mean pain measures differed between control and treatment groups favouring Ignatia (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Our results suggest that Ignatia has a beneficial effect in treatment of OLP in selected patients.
