Dimitrios Malamos, Crispian Scully
This series of three papers reviews the causes, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and outlines the management of sore and/or swollen lips. Clinical relevance: Sore and/or swollen lips are not uncommon, often have a local cause, but may reflect a systemic disease. The previous article reviewed important causes, from actinic to contact cheilitis, while this paper starts with drug-induced cheilitis and completes that alphabetical list.

BACKGROUND: Orofacial granulomatosis is a relatively recent term coined by Wiesenfield et al. in 1985 to define granulomatous lesions of oral mucosa without intestinal involvement. When it presents in a triad encompassing facial nerve palsy, lip swelling, and fissured or furrowed tongue it is called Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome while monosymptomatic or oligosymptomatic forms are referred to as granulomatous cheilitis. It is an uncommon clinicopathologic entity which is distinct from classic Crohn's disease...

Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic, idiophatic inflammatory process of the gastrointestinal tract and its cause remains unknown. It can affect any part of the digestive system, but preferentially involves the terminal part of the small intestine and the beginning of the large intestine. The disease course is usually long-term with episodes of remission and relapses. The clinical presentation of the disease varies and depends on the site of inflammation. Oral lesions can occur in 80% of pediatric and 90% of adult patients with CD...

Atopic dermatitis has a substantial impact on sleep, appearance, psychological well-being, and other qualities of life. The visual appearance of lichenification, cheilitis, hyperpigmentation, ichthyosis, and erythema can be socially stigmatizing, and treatment of these symptoms is challenging. In managing pruritus in patients, practitioners should assess and document pruritus through questionnaires at each routine visit. Initially, practitioners should advise patients to employ non-pharmaceutical treatments such as emollients with wet wraps, elimination of triggers, changing scratching habits, and psychological interventions...

OBJECTIVE: Actinic cheilitis (AC) is a potentially malignant lesion caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light. The aim of this research was to analyze the efficacy of diclofenac sodium 3% gel in the treatment of this condition, through clinical follow-up. METHODS: Thirty-one patients diagnosed with AC were instructed to perform a topical application of the gel three times a day for a period of 90 days. In each visit, a digital photography was obtained for verified progress and response to treatment...

In recent years, due to the development of nanotechnology new horizons in treatment and diagnosis of cancer open up. Development of nano-systems for simultaneous transfer of active substances and imaging of tumor regions gathers an important amount of scientific interest. This new category of nano-systems is called Theranostics. Theranostics methods can provide multiple benefits by inserting nanoparticles into the patient and using photodynamic therapy and pave the way for personalized medicine. The objective of this paper is to study the use and application of Theranostics in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, in order to achieve personalized anticancer treatment...

BACKGROUND: Plane warts are a common therapeutic problem. Our aim was to assess the efficacy and safety of oral versus topical isotretinoin in the treatment of plane warts. METHODS: Forty patients with multiple plane warts were randomized into two groups. Group A was treated with oral isotretinoin capsules in the dose of 0.5 mg/kg/d and Group B with topical isotretinoin 0.05% in gel formulation once daily at night. Treatment was given to the patients for 3 months or until the complete clearance of lesions, whichever was earlier...

This contribution describes hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) occurring in Down disease that presented with morphology conforming to an overlap of stages 1 and 2 of the Hurley staging system, namely the formation of solitary or multiple isolated abscesses without scarring or sinus tracts, recurrent abscesses, and single or multiple widely separated lesions with sinus tract formation, occupying apocrine sweat gland-bearing areas: the inner thighs, groin, and buttocks. The lesions were bilateral and symmetrical, of rare occurrence...

AIM: The aim of this study is to compare oral signs, symptoms and oral lesions type and prevalence, in end stage renal disease (ESRD) with non-end stage renal disease (NESRD) in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients. METHODOLOGY: Two groups of DM patients were studied, Group 1 includes 100 patients with ESRD, who were under hemodialysis therapy, and Group 2 includes100 patients with NESRD whose serum creatinine level is <2.0 mg/dl. The DM status and other laboratory investigations were recorded, with the patients consent and thorough oral examination was performed and the findings were recorded...

Lupus erythematosus (LE) is an autoimmune disease which may initially present solely with lip lesions. Due to a wide spectrum of presentation, these features may initially be misdiagnosed as other oral diseases such as lichen planus, erythema multiforme (EM), and actinic cheilitis, leading to a delay in diagnosis and treatment. We discuss a case of severely crusted cheilitis which was initially diagnosed as EM, with subsequent development of subacute cutaneous LE, and progression to systemic LE. We will discuss the clinical and histological features of lupus cheilitis...

Orofacial granulomatosis (OFG) is the term given to a group of diseases characterized by the presence of non-necrotizing granulomatous inflammation affecting the soft tissues of the orofacial region. Treatment of OFG is often challenging and unsatisfactory. We report on a 32-year-old man with a 2-year history of oedema and swelling of the upper lip without systemic symptoms. The history, clinical features and histopathological findings led to the diagnosis of cheilitis granulomatosa (CG), a disease included in the spectrum of OFG...

BACKGROUND: Actinic cheilitis (AC) is a common disease caused by chronic ultraviolet exposure. OBJECTIVE: Alacare is a self-adhesive, skin coloured 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) patch that has been developed for the treatment of mild to moderate actinic keratosis (AK). Considering the good results in the treatment of AK, the standardized delivery of ALA and the simple application Alacare patch- photodynamic therapy (PDT) appears as an interesting treatment option for AC...

The aim of this study was to determine whether highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is associated with the prevalence of oral lesions in HIV-positive patients. This systematic review and meta-analysis was performed in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses). The search was conducted in seven electronic databases (PubMed, Scopus, SciELO, LILACS, Embase, Web of Science, and OpenGrey), without restriction on publication period or language...

INTRODUCTION: Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) is a severe toxidermia that can lead to death from multivisceral failure. We report a case of DRESS associated with febrile agranulocytosis in a child. OBSERVATION: An 8-year-old child was hospitalized for diffuse maculopapular exanthema with edema of the extremities and face associated with cheilitis and febrile agranulocytosis. This symptomatology began 1month after the introduction of carbamazepine for partial epilepsy...
