Amalgam is one of the most widely used restorative material in dentistry. However due to continuous low level release of mercury (Hg) from amalgam Fillings, its safety and wide scale use has been questioned. The main concerns relate to the potential toxic effects of Hg and the possibility that Hg may induce adverse immunological effects. With regard to the latter. there have been a number of reports suggesting that amalgam fillings may induce oral lichen planus (OLP) like or oral Lichenoid lesions(OLL)Here we present a case report of Amalgam Associated Oral Lichenoid Reaction (AAOLR) or Amalgam Contact Hypersensitivity Lesions( ACHL)s with emphasis on current review literature.
