Cheilitis Granulomatosa of Miescher

definition

Chronic swelling of the lip due to a granulomatous inflammation of unknown cause. At first a variable, later an increasingly more permanent, diffuse, inflammatory swelling of the lip develops. The upper lip, the lower lip and one or both cheeks are most commonly involved in decreasing order of frequency. On palpation the lips show increased consistency. Cheilitis granulomatosa is also one of the symptoms of the Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome.
