    Oral Oncol 2016 Mar 16;54:28-35. Epub 2016 Jan 16.
    The Melanoma Institute Australia, Sydney, Australia; The University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia; Melanoma Diagnostic Centre, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, Australia. Electronic address:
    Confocal microscopy (CM) has been shown to correlate with oral mucosal histopathology in vivo. The purposes of this review are to summarize what we know so far about in vivo CM applications for oral mucosal pathologies, to highlight some current developments with CM devices relevant for oral applications, and to formulate where in vivo CM could hold further application for oral mucosal diagnosis and management. Ovid Medline® and/or Google® searches were performed using the terms 'microscopy, confocal', 'mouth neoplasms', 'mouth mucosa', 'leukoplakia, oral', 'oral lichen planus', 'gingiva', 'cheilitis', 'taste', 'inflammatory oral confocal', 'mucosal confocal' and 'confocal squamous cell oral'.

    Am J Dermatopathol 2015 Mar;37(3):197-202
    *Department of General Pathology, Dental School, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil; †Centro de Investigaciones Dermatológicas, Buenos Aires, Argentina; ‡Department of Dermatology, Hospital das Clínicas, Medical School, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil; and §Department of Surgical Pathology, Hospital Obrero, La Paz, Bolívia.
    Cheilitis glandularis (CG) is an uncommon condition of unknown origin; it is clinically characterized by variable degrees of macrocheilia associated with red dilated ostia of minor salivary glands on the vermilion area, which secrete viscous saliva. Histopathological characteristics of CG are comprised of chronic sialadenitis with engorged acinar lobules and dilated ducts; CG also features chronic sun damage (actinic cheilitis and squamous cell carcinoma). These changes may be localized, and a punch biopsy specimen might fail to reveal enough criteria to support the diagnosis of CG. Read More

    Cheilitis glandularis: immunohistochemical expression of protein water channels (aquaporins) in minor labial salivary glands.
    J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2014 Mar 7;28(3):382-7. Epub 2013 Jan 7.

Aquaporins (AQPs) are membrane proteins that exhibit channel activity specific for water and small solutes. AQPs are essential for corporal homeostasis, and are widely expressed through human tissues. Read More

    School of Dentistry of Pernambuco (FOP/UPE), Recife, Brazil.
    A variety of pathological conditions of diverse etiologies may involve the lips. Cheilitis glandularis (CGL) is a rare disorder of unknown etiology characterized by inflammation of the minor salivary glands of the lower lip. The aim of this paper is to compare the diagnosis and treatment of two cases of CGL at an early age (one in a child and the other in a young adult with mental retardation) with the diagnosis and treatment of actinic cheilitis, which is much more prevalent than CGL in tropical countries.

    Cheilitis glandularis: a clinical marker for both malignancy and/or severe inflammatory disease of the oral cavity.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 2006 Feb;54(2):336-7
    Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, Arkansas, USA.
    We report the case of an 84-year-old white male who underwent vermilionectomy for removal of a tumor, which proved to be squamous cell carcinoma. Chelitis glandularis related to marked actinic damage was noted at a subsequent visit. The presence of chelitis glandularis should be investigated for the presence of neoplasia, immunosuppression, or inflammatory diseases related to extremely poor oral hygiene. Read More

    Abteilung für Oralchirurgie und zahnärztliche Röntgenologie, Zentrum für Zahnmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Charité, Augustenburger Platz 1, 13353 Berlin.
    Background: Glandular cheilitis (GC) is a rarely recognized disease of the accessory salivary glands of the lips, particularly of the lower lip. Clinically, three variants have been described: cheilitis glandularis simplex, cheilitis glandularis suppurativa, and cheilitis glandularis apostematosa. Most cases are diagnosed as the simple form of glandular cheilitis, which is characterized by enlarged excretory ducts, induration, and enlargement of the salivary glands as well as production of a rather mucopurulent saliva.

    Persistent sialadenitis of the minor glands--stomatitis glandularis.
    Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 1989 Jun;27(3):212-6
    Department of Oral Medicine and Periodontology, London Hospital Medical College.
    In a recurring lesion on the palate of a 60-year-old male, histological features of a chronic inflammatory disease of the minor salivary glands resembling those found in cheilitis glandularis were found. The similarities between the clinical and histological features of our case and cheilitis glandularis are discussed and the inherent nature of the disease emphasised. We propose the terms persistent sialadenitis of the minor glands or stomatitis glandularis, for this condition. Read More

    Cheilitis glandularis: a pediatric case report.
    J Am Dent Assoc 1989 Mar;118(3):317-8
    Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada.
    Cheilitis glandularis is a rare disorder, usually affecting the lower lip of adults. This case involved both lips of an adolescent male. A familial history of the condition may have contributed to the involvement of both lips, and may reinforce the importance of hereditary tendency in the development of cheilitis glandularis.

    Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol 1986 Dec;62(6):654-6
    Cheilitis glandularis is a rare disorder characterized by enlarged mucous glands, usually in the lower lip, and possibly predisposing to squamous cell carcinoma. A case affecting the upper lip is presented, which appears to be the first report of the disorder in that site. Read More

    Munchausen's syndrome: a new variety of bleeding type-self-inflicted cheilorrhagia and cheilitis glandularis.
    Dermatologica 1985 ;170(2):93-7
    The unique case of a self-inflicted cheilorrhagia with clinical features of Munchausen syndrome and cheilitis glandularis is described.

    Cheilitis glandularis: a re-evaluation.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1984 Mar;10(3):466-72
    Cheilitis glandularis (CG) has been attributed to hyperplasia of labial salivary glands. We studied labial biopsy specimens of five patients with clinical CG and compared their salivary tissue with that seen in patients without CG. The labial glands from patients with CG did not differ in size, depth, or histologic appearance from those seen in the controls. Read More

    Factitious cheilitis.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1983 Mar;8(3):368-72
    Six patients (four male and two female) with factitious cheilitis are described. All had personality disturbances as well as crusted lip lesions that varied in severity from thin serous crusts to thick hemorrhagic crusts. This entity must be distinguished from infectious cheilitis, contact cheilitis, actinic cheilitis, photosensitivity dermatoses, exfoliative cheilitis, and cheilitis glandularis on the basis of the history and laboratory evaluation.

    Cheilitis glandularis.
    Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol 1982 Jun;53(6):602-5
    Cheilitis glandularis is an uncommon lesion affecting the lower lip. Its origin remains obscure, although it is hypothesized that chronic irritation secondary to prolonged solar exposure causes hypertrophy of the labial salivary glands and eventual enlargement and ectropion of the lower lip. Although carcinoma of the lower lip has been reported in association with it, cheilitis glandularis is still considered a benign process that is adequately managed with conservative surgery. Read More

    Cheilitis glandularis.
    Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol 1980 Jun;49(6):526-9
    A case of cheilitis glandularis simplex occuring in a 65-year-old white man is presented. The condition is characterized by an everted lower lip, with enlarged labial salivary glands secreting a clear, thick mucus. A history of sun exposure, dry atrophic lip, and histologic findings of epithelial dysplasia, sclerosed glands, markedly dilated ducts, chronic inflammation, and basophilic degeneration of collagen indicate a solar etiology.
