Melkersson⁻Rosenthal Syndrome in Childhood: Report of Three Paediatric Cases and a Review of the Literature.

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

Association of geographic tongue and fissured tongue with ABO blood group among adult psoriasis patients: a novel study from a tertiary care hospital in Saudi Arabia.

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Assistant Professor, Department of Periodontics and Community Sciences, College of Dentistry, King Khalid University, Abha, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Objective: We aimed to determine if there was any association between geographic tongue (GT) and fissured tongue with ABO blood group among adult psoriasis patients in Saudi Arabia.

Study Design: This hospital-based cross-sectional study included 100 consecutive new adult patients diagnosed with psoriasis and 100 case-matched participants in the control group (nonpsoriatic). Sociodemographic and dermatologic parameters, intraoral lesions (GT and fissured tongue), and ABO blood grouping and immunoglobulins were recorded and evaluated using χ or Fisher's exact test.

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.

Clinical and genetic heterogeneity in Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome.

Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine, Evolution and Genomic Sciences, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK; Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine, St. Mary's Hospital, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, UK. Electronic address:

Melkersson Rosenthal syndromes (MRS) is a rare autosomal dominantly inherited neurocutaneous syndrome characterised by a triad of facial (seventh cranial) nerve palsy, recurrent orofacial swelling and fissuring of the tongue. A recent report implicated a heterozygous missense variant in SLC27A1 (FATP1) as the cause of this condition in members of an affected Chinese family. We undertook Sanger sequencing of this gene in 14 affected unrelated individuals affected by MRS. Read More

Tongue Atrophy in Sjögren Syndrome Patients with Mucosa-associated Lymphoid Tissue Lymphoma: Autoimmune Epithelitis beyond the Epithelial Cells of Salivary Glands?

J Rheumatol 2018 Nov 15;45(11):1565-1571. Epub 2018 Jul 15.

From the Institute for Systemic Autoimmune and Neurological Diseases; Department of Oral Medicine and Oral Pathology, Faculty of Dentistry, School of Health Sciences, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens; Department of Pathophysiology, and Department of Physiology, Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens; Academy of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Objective: Primary Sjögren syndrome (pSS), an autoimmune epithelitis, bears the risk of evolving to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and most frequently to the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) subtype. Based on the observation that pSS patients with MALT present a more atrophic and more intensely fissured tongue, we aimed to semiquantify severity of tongue atrophy and clinically assess lingual appearance in pSS patients with and without MALT, and investigate whether tongue atrophy and fissured appearance could serve as clinical indicators/signs of MALT.

Methods: A blinded complete oral examination was performed in pSS patients with and without MALT. Read More

Digestive system in psoriasis: an update.

Arch Dermatol Res 2017 Nov 13;309(9):679-693. Epub 2017 Sep 13.

Dermatologikum Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany.

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory immune-mediated disorder associated and often coexisting with many other immune-related clinical conditions including those affecting the gastrointestinal tract. Data obtained from the reviewed literature suggest an association between psoriasis and pathologies of the oral cavity, both psoriasis-specific lesions, as well as non-specific, such as geographic tongue or fissured tongue. These findings show the importance of thorough examination of oral mucosa in psoriatic patients. Read More

DermatoVenereology (Skin/VD) Centre, Sehgal Nursing Home, Panchwati, Delhi, India.

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.

Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ) - Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Brazil.

Geographic tongue is a chronic, inflammatory, and immune-mediated oral lesion of unknown etiology. It is characterized by serpiginous white areas around the atrophic mucosa, which alternation between activity, remission and reactivation at various locations gave the names benign migratory glossitis and wandering rash of the tongue. Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease with frequent cutaneous involvement and an immunogenetic basis of great importance in clinical practice. Read More

Clin Dermatol 2016 Jul-Aug;34(4):458-69. Epub 2016 Mar 8.

Department of Dermatology, Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, AZ.

The tongue is a complex organ involved in speech and expression as well as in gustation, mastication, and deglutition. The oral cavity, along with the tongue, are sites of neoplasms, reactive processes, and infections, and may be a harbinger of systemic diseases. This review includes both common and rare diseases that occur on the tongue, including: vascular and lymphatic lesions (infantile hemangiomas and oral varices), reactive and inflammatory processes (hairy tongue, pigmented fungiform papillae of the tongue, benign migratory glossitis, and fissured tongue), infections (oral hairy leukoplakia, herpes simplex and varicella-zoster virus infections, human papillomavirus, and candidiasis), premalignant lesions (leukoplakia and erythroplakia), malignant lesions (squamous cell carcinoma, Kaposi sarcoma, and lymphoproliferative diseases), and signs of systemic disease (nutritional deficiency and systemic amyloidosis).
