  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 12-year-old boy found a aphtha-like eruption on the center of lower lip about 3 weeks ago, which enlarged gradually in spite of topical and systemic treatment.

At his first visit to our clinic it was a thumb-sized induration with ulcer suggesting ulcus durum.

Treponema pallidum from the lesion was failed to be proved, and serological test for syphilis was negative. Staphylococcus aureus was cultured from the eruption.

Histologic picture was non-specific granulomatous inflammation.

Systemic administration of antibiotics showed no particular effect, but it was cured spontaneo-usly.
