Abstract

An unusual case of oral mucositis with features of psoriasis is reported along with a review of the cases of oral psoriasis in the literature. The case reported involved a crusted lesion on the upper lip and erythematous lesions on the labial mucosa, buccal mucosa, and denture-bearing palatal mucosa. In addition, lesions resembling geographic tongue and ectopic geographic tongue were present. All lesions exhibited multiple small pustules. The review of the literature compares the distribution and clinical appearance of previously reported cases of oral psoriasis.
