Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is known as the most common chronic disease of the oral cavity, which affects a range of 5-25% of the population. RAS appears to be associated with some human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II alleles and haplotypes. This study attempts to survey the distribution of HLA-DRB and -DQB alleles among Iranian RAS patients and healthy controls. In order to evaluate the association of HLA-DR and DQ alleles and haplotypes, 54 patients with RAS and 100 unrelated healthy subjects as control group were investigated...

BACKGROUND: Musculoskeletal manifestations (MSM) of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are usually the most frequent extraintestinal manifestations. However, they are not paid enough attention during regular office visits. This cross-sectional study aimed to draw a clinical picture of MSM and their relationships with other findings in patients with IBD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients of our IBD cohort between March 2012 and September 2013 were consecutively evaluated...

BACKGROUND: The present study aimed to elucidate the associations among self-rated oral health, clinical oral health status, oral health behaviors, subjective oral symptoms, and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in a group of Japanese university students. METHODS: Of 2051 participants, 2027 (98.83%) students received an optional oral examination and answered a questionnaire including items regarding age, sex, self-rated oral health, oral health behaviors, subjective oral symptoms, and OHRQoL [The Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP)-14]...

OBJECTIVE: mTOR inhibitor treatment of solid cancers is associated with mTOR inhibitor-associated stomatitis (mIAS) a common, significant, dose-limiting toxicity, with aphthous-like lesions. Our objective was to assess the utility of a new organotypic model in defining mIAS' pathogenesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The effect of everolimus on organotypic human oral mucosa was studied. Sterile specimens were assessed 24 hr and 48 hr after exposure to varying concentrations of everolimus...

: This systematic review presents the oral manifestations of paediatric Crohn's disease. Our review of 28 papers published from 2000 to 2015 showed that the prevalence of oral manifestations was 10 to 80%. Specific symptoms included mucosal tags, swelling of the lips, cheeks and gingiva and cobblestoning mucosa. Non-specific symptoms included aphthous-like ulcers, angular cheilitis, lip fissuring and gingivitis. CONCLUSION: The oral manifestations of Crohn's disease might precede intestinal inflammation or coincide with it...

Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis (RAS) is a condition in which aphthous ulcers repeatedly occur in the oral cavity. It is prevalent in developed countries, occurring in all ages, geographic regions and races and about 80% of people have one episode of oral aphthous ulcers before the age of 30 years. With no laboratory procedures to confirm the diagnosis, treatment is mainly empirical in nature and focuses on short-term symptomatic management. Although numerous treatment modalities have been recommended, only a few are evidence based and can be considered for the optimal management of RAS...

BACKGROUND: Capsule endoscopy (CE) has proven to be highly effective at detecting small bowel lesions, but studies regarding the diagnostic impact of CE on ileitis are rare. AIMS: We evaluated the diagnostic value of small bowel CE for isolated ileitis observed during ileocolonoscopy. METHODS: The CE results in 137 patients initially diagnosed with ileitis without colonic mucosal abnormalities on ileocolonoscopy at one of eight tertiary referral centers between October 2002 and June 2015 were retrospectively analyzed...

OBJECTIVES: Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is a common painful disorder affecting oral health, mucosa and overall quality of life. The etiopathogenesis of RAS remains unclear. RAS shows a large genetic diversity among the patients. In present study, we investigated whether CD40 gene rs4810485 and rs1883832 are associated with RAS and its clinical findings in Turkish patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Genomic DNA obtained from 387 individuals (160 patients with RAS and 227 healthy controls) were used in the study...

Due to its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and biostimulating effects, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been widely used for oral disorders, such as oral lichen planus (OLP), xerostomia, recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS), herpes labialis, burning mouth syndrome (BMS), and oral mucositis (OM). The research team for the present study has reviewed the literature on the subject, with an emphasis on the applicability of LLLT in general and of its various clinical protocols for the management of those oral disorders...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent fever syndrome, known as the Marshall syndrome (MS), is a clinical entity that includes several clinical features, such as: fever (39-40°C) that occurs repeatedly at variable intervals (3-8 weeks) and in episodes of 3 to 6 days, cervical adenopathy, pharyngitis, and aphthous stomatitis. The diagnosis of MS is one of exclusions; laboratory data is nonspecific and no abnormalities correlated with MS have been detected thus far. METHODS: The authors report the case of a 2-year-old girl admitted to a tertiary pediatric center for repeated episodes of fever with aphthous stomatitis and laterocervical adenopathy...

Behçet's disease is an inflammatory disease of unknown etiology which involves recurring oral and genital aphthous ulcers and ocular lesions as well as articular, vascular, and nervous system involvement. Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is usually seen in viral infections, immune deficiency syndrome, sickle cell anemia, and hyperfiltration and secondary to interferon therapy. Here, we present a case of FSGS identified with kidney biopsy in a patient who had been diagnosed with Behçet's disease and received interferon-alpha treatment for uveitis and presented with acute renal failure and nephrotic syndrome associated with interferon...

The aim of this study was to find the frequency of various oral mucosal lesions in relation to age, sex, site and associated addiction habits. This retrospective study was done in tertiary care centre including 1280 patients of oral mucosal lesions. Clinical findings and detailed history of their addiction habits with frequency and duration was noted from the existing data. Cytological and histopathological diagnosis of various lesions was recorded to conclude diagnosis. The most common lesion in this study was found to be aphthous ulcers (44...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Approximately 13% of recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) patients have serum anti-gastric parietal cell antibody (GPCA) positivity. This study assessed whether serum GPCA or RAS itself was a significant factor causing hematinic deficiencies and anemia statuses in GPCA-positive RAS (GPCA+/RAS) and all autoantibodies-negative RAS (Abs-/RAS) patients. METHODS: The mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean blood hemoglobin (Hb), iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid levels were measured and compared between any two of three groups of 31 GPCA+/RAS patients, 240 Abs-/RAS patients, and 342 healthy control subjects...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Serum anti-gastric parietal cell (GPCA), anti-thyroglobulin (TGA), and anti-thyroid microsomal antibodies (TMA) can be found in some recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) patients. This study mainly assessed whether serum GPCA, TGA, TMA and RAS itself played significant roles in causing anemia and hematinic deficiencies in TGA/TMA-positive RAS patients with GPCA positivity (GPCA+/TGA/TMA/RAS patients) or negativity (GPCA-/TGA/TMA/RAS patients). METHODS: The mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean blood hemoglobin (Hb), iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid levels were measured and compared between any two of the four groups of 15 GPCA+/TGA/TMA/RAS patients, 69 GPCA-/TGA/TMA/RAS patients, 240 all autoantibodies-negative RAS patients (Abs-/RAS patients), and 342 healthy control subjects...

BACKGROUND: There is a paucity of data on extraintestinal manifestations (EIM) and their treatment in pediatric patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). METHODS: Since 2008, the Pediatric Swiss IBD Cohort Study has collected data on the pediatric IBD population in Switzerland. Data on 329 patients were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: 55 patients (16.7%) suffered from 1-4 EIM (39 Crohn's disease, 12 ulcerative colitis and 4 IBD-Unclassified (IBD-U) patients)...
