In patients presenting with therapy-resistant cheilitis, especially when extending to the perioral skin, patch tests should be performed, even in longstanding cases(1-2) . A 55-year-old woman suffered from an oozing cheilitis for three months with erythema, edema and crusting of the lips and perioral skin (Fig. 1). An intra-oral burning sensation, loss of taste and a dry mouth were also present. Microbiological swabs and a blood analysis did not reveal any abnormalities, and the application of topical corticosteroids brought only temporary relief...

INTRODUCTION: Miescher's cheilitis is clinically characterized by persistent swelling of the lip(s). Its pathogenesis is still unknown. Histopathologically is characterized by sub-epithelial edema, increased number of dilated lymphatic vessels and an inflammatory infiltrate and/or non-caseating/non- necrotic granulomas. Even if the disorder must be controlled by medical therapy, surgery may be required to treat most severe cases. PRESENTATION OF THE CASE: We report a 30-year-old man who presented a persistent swelling of both lips since 8 years, previously treated with intralesional steroid and immunosuppressive therapy...

BACKGROUND: Acetylation/deacetylation are the most studied covalent histone modifications resulting in transcriptional regulation with histone deacetylases (HDAC) and histone acetyltransferases (HAT) as the main associated enzymes. These enzymes overexpression induces abnormal transcription of key genes that regulate important cellular functions, such as proliferation, cell cycle regulation, and apoptosis. Thus, the expression of different HATs and HDACs has been evaluated in various cancers...

Actinic cheilitis (AC) is a disease caused by prolonged and cumulative sun exposure that mostly affects the lower lip, which can progress to a lip squamous cell carcinoma. Routine diagnosis relies on clinician experience and training. We investigated the diagnostic efficacy of wide-field fluorescence imaging coupled to an automated algorithm for AC recognition. Fluorescence images were acquired from 57 patients with confirmed AC and 46 normal volunteers. Three different algorithms were employed: two based on the emission characteristics of local heterogeneity, entropy and intensity range, and one based on the number of objects after K-mean clustering...

OBJECTIVE: Parkinson's disease (PD) adversely affects oral health (OH). However, the informative value of xerostomia compared to objective parameters and its impact on quality of life (QoL) is still unclear. This study aimed to explore whether xerostomia correlates with hyposalivation and to define its impact on OH-related QoL. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Whole stimulated saliva (WSS) was collected from 30 PD patients and 30 matched healthy controls. Objective parameters (Community Periodontal Index of Treatment Needs, plaque/ gingivitis index, mucosa situation and cheilitis angularis), and questionnaires (German Oral Health Impact Profile [OHIPG]-14, visual analogue scale [VAS], xerostomia [yes/no], and the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale-II) were assessed...

: 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 10-80%. Specific symptoms included mucosal tags, swelling of the lips, cheeks and gingiva, and cobblestoning mucosa. Nonspecific 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...

Actinic cheilitis is a potentially malignant disorder of the lips. Its first cause is believed to be UV sun radiation. The lesion is highly heterogeneous, making the choice of area to be biopsied difficult. This study exploits the capabilities of time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy for the identification of the most representative area to be biopsied. A preliminary study was performed on fourteen patients. A classification algorithm was used on data acquired on nine different biopsies. The algorithm discriminated between absent, mild, and moderate dysplasia with a sensitivity of 92...

This paper reports on the results of a case study of a 19-year-old female who presented to the Oral Medicine clinic with a chief complaint of scaly and peeling lips. The lesions had persisted on her lips for more than 7 years and were refractory to previous treatment. Her physician's diagnosis was contact dermatitis. We diagnosed this patient as having exfoliative cheilitis (EC). A patch test using the toothpaste containing sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) was positive and the patient discontinued using it. Instead, she started using a toothpaste not containing SLS...

INTRODUCTION: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection gradually destroys the body's immune system, which makes it harder for the body to fight infections. HIV infection causes a quantitative and qualitative depletion of CD4 lymphocyte count, which increases the risk of opportunistic infections. Thus, CD4 count is one of the key factors in determining both the urgency of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) initiation and the need of prophylaxis for opportunistic infections...
