Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a newly pandemic infectious disease and a major global public health issue leading to the urgent development of several vaccines. Various types of vaccines have been used which are aimed to prevent and decrease the severity of COVID-19 infection. Inactivated virus, protein subunit, viral vector-based and mRNA-based vaccines are available in Thailand.

Several cutaneous side effects of COVID-19 vaccination have been reported, such as urticaria, eczema, herpes zoster and local reaction at injection site. Occurring of lichen planus after COVID-19 vaccines especially after receiving mRNA-based vaccine has been reported. We present a case who developed new-onset oral lichen planus 3 weeks after receiving COVID-19 vaccine (AZD1222) in Thailand. Both new-onset cutaneous and oral lichen planus occurring after COVID-19 vaccine are also summarized.
