Background and Aim: Regarding the importance and prevalence of lichen planus among patients and rarity of Oro-Vulval-Vaginal and Peno-Gingival syndromes ,that need more attention for diagnosis because of simultaneous oral and genital involvement , we are going to review the symptoms and early diagnosis of these patients. The aim of this article ,is to report two patients with Oro-Vulval-Vaginal syndrome and two patients with Peno-Gingival syndrome with a short review on these syndromes and their treatments.

Case Report: This study is a case report about four patients with these syndromes who attended oral medicine department of Shaheed Beheshti Dentistry School. For each patient a complete document consisting of demographic information ,medical ,dental ,familial and social history was prepared and a photograph was taken from the oral lesions at the first visit and for definite diagnosis of genital lesions consultation with Dermatologist and OB &GYN Surgeon was done.After biopsy and definite diagnosis simultaneous treatment for oral and genital lesions started. Regarding the severity of lesions and acceptable response to the primary treatment , type and dose of the drug was changed and finally the patients were placed in follow up phase. Conclusion: Regarding the outcome of neglecting Lichen Planus in other organs and delay in accurate diagnosis and lack of receiving enouph and on time treatment , performing an exact examination and taking a complete history with attention to other organ`s symptoms is of great importance. More over malignant changes in even asymptomatic oral and genital lesions is probable.
