Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 Apr 10;16(7). Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Pediatric Clinic Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo⁻V.le Golgi, 19 Pavia, Italy.

Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) in children is a rare condition, clinically characterised by a triad of synchronous or metachronous symptoms: recurrent peripheral facial palsy, relapsing orofacial oedema, and a fissured tongue; the most recent review published on the topic has reported 30 published patients. The aetiology of this disease is still unclear. However, genetic factors, as well as alterations in immune functions, infections, and allergic reactions have been postulated. Read More

[Recurrent and alternating peripheral facial palsy in a Rehabilitation department].

Rehabilitacion (Madr) 2019 Jan - Mar;53(1):60-64. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Servicio de Rehabilitación y Medicina Física, Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valencia, Valencia, España.

Peripheral facial palsy is a relatively frequent condition in rehabilitation departments. The most common aetiology is idiopathic, known as Bell's palsy, which usually has a good prognosis and resolves without sequels. The presence of uncommon symptoms with the facial palsy should lead to suspicion of another possible aetiology, as occurred in the case presented here. Read More

Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome: a case report of a rare disease with overlapping features.

Allergy Asthma Clin Immunol 2019 5;15. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

2Department of Neuroscience, Division of Dentistry, University of Padua, Via Giustiniani 2, 35128 Padua, Italy.

Background: Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) is a rare, neuro-mucocutaneous disease which presents as orofacial swelling, facial palsy and fissured tongue. These symptoms may occur simultaneously or, more frequently, with a oligosymptomatic or monosymptomatic pattern. Swelling, that is the most common initial finding, may mimic hereditary or acquired angioedema, a disorder caused by histamine or bradykinin-mediated plasma-leakage affecting subcutaneous and/or submucosal tissue.

Service d'Hépato-gastroentérologie, Faculté de Médecine et de Pharmacie de Fès, Université Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdellah, Fès, Maroc.

Many disorders of the digestive tract cause cutaneous manifestations that may be an indication of an underlying condition; hence dermatologist plays a key role in recommending that the patient see a gastroenterologist. Conversely, gastroenterologist often sees patients with mucocutaneous lesions suggesting possible association with well-known digestive disorders. Chronic inflammatory bowel diseases are the typical example of this essential collaboration between the two specialities. Read More

A Systematic Review of the Literature of the Three Related Disease Entities Cheilitis Granulomatosa, Orofacial Granulomatosis and Melkersson - Rosenthal Syndrome.

Curr Pediatr Rev 2018 ;14(3):196-203

Department of Pediatrics, Hospital Ostallgau-Kaufbeuren, Kaufbeuren, Germany.

Background And Objective: Melkersson Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) is a rare disorder of unknown etiology and comprises the triad: orofacial edema, recurrent facial paralysis and lingua plicata. In the current literature confusing heterogeneity exists, mixing together the historically grown terms cheilitis granulomatosa or granulomatous cheilitis, Melkersson Rosenthal syndrome and the umbrella term Orofacial Granulomatosis (OFG).

Methods: We provide a systematic review comprising all three disease entities of orofacial granulomatosis using the computerized database "Pubmed Medline" entering the keywords "orofacial granulomatosis" (141 references), "Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome" (207 references), "granulomatous cheilitis" or "cheilitis granulomatosa" (102 references) back to 1956.

Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome: A Case Report With a Psychosomatic Perspective.

Adv Mind Body Med 2017 Winter;31(1):14-17

Context • The Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome (MRS) is a rare condition characterized by a triad of symptoms: (1) recurrent and/or persistent orofacial swelling, (2) recurrent facial paralysis, and (3) a fissured tongue. Although various contributing factors have been suggested, the etiology and mechanisms of the syndrome have not been fully elucidated. Objective • The aim of the current study was to examine for the first time some psychosomatic aspects of the syndrome and to evaluate the benefits of a brief psychotherapeutic process in which the research team worked to reintegrate the complex bio-psycho-social functioning of the patient.

Section of Dermatopathology, Division of Surgical & Cytological Pathology, University of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville, VA, USA. Electronic address:

Granulomas of the skin may be classified in several ways. They are either infectious or non-infectious in character, and they contain areas of necrobiosis or necrosis, or not. Responsible infectious agents may be mycobacterial, fungal, treponemal, or parasitic organisms, and each case of granulomatous dermatitis should be assessed histochemically for those microbes.

Can obstructive intralymphatic granulomas be the cause of cheilitis granulomatosa?

Lymphology 2017 ;50(3):148-153

Department of Physiotherapy, University School of Physical Education, Wroclaw, Poland.

Cheilitis granulomatosa (ChG), also known as Miescher's cheilitis, is an uncommon, immunologically mediated nonnecrotizing granulomatous inflammatory disease characterized by recurrent, painless swelling of the lips. The aim of the study was a pathomorphological and immunohistochemical assessment of cases clinically classified as ChG to investigate potential pathological mechanisms of ChG symptoms and to verify the hypothesis of intravascular granulomas as a cause of lymphatic vessel obstruction and localized edema in ChG. We report 6 patients with ChG who clinically presented localized edema of the lips. Read More
