1/14. Geographic lip: a variant of geopgraphic tongue.

    The following aspects of the classic geographic tongue are discussed: clinical polymorphism with the appearance of annulus migrans, histological appearacne of the spongiform pustule, frequent association with pustular psoriasis and related diseases, and its relationship to psoriasis buccalis. Two cases of geographic lip are described in which annulus migrans was present. In one case, the geographic lip was associated with a plicated lip, a labial form of plicated tongue.

2/14. Atypical benign migratory glossitis. Report of a case with histologic and electron microscopic evaluations.

    A case of benign migratory glossitis atypically confined to only one side of the tongue is presented. The diagnosis was confirmed by repeated histopathologic evaluation. Electron microscopic studies revealed a striking intimacy between sensory nerve processes and the basal lamina of the lingual epithelium.

3/14. Symptomatic benign migratory glossitis: report of two cases and literature review.

    Benign migratory glossitis (geographic tongue) is a common clinical finding in routine pediatric dentistry. The condition usually discovered on routine clinical examination, appearing as an asymptomatic, ulcer-like region on the dorsum of the tongue. The lesion may recur at different sites on the tongue, creating a migratory appearance, and in many cases, will resolve completely. The presentation of symptomatic geographic tongue in children is rare. This article presents two cases of symptomatic geographic tongue. Both children presented with a chief complaint of significant oral pain which was affecting daily activity, eating, and sleeping. Both patients presented with a classical clinical presentation of ulcer-like regions on the dorsum of the tongue in which the filiform papillae were denuded. Successful management was achieved with topical and systemic antihistamine. The clinician should be aware that this condition may be symptomatic in children.

4/14. Geographic tongue during a year of oral contraceptive cycles.

    The geographic tongue of a 23-year-old female student was examined daily for one year. The size, number and location of the lesions were recorded using transparent films. The phase of the oral contraceptive cycle appeared to have a marked effect on the initiation and duration of the circinate lesions, the tongue changes being severest on the 17th day of the cycle. There was a positive correlation between the subjective complaint and the clinical picture of the tongue.

5/14. Ectopic geographic tongue and AIDS.

    A 23-year-old man with AIDS developed a lesion with the clinical characteristics of an ectopic geographic tongue in the lower lip, near the right commissure.

6/14. Migratory stomatitis: a case report.

    This case report discusses a 42-year-old male patient who presented with migratory stomatitis located on the labial and buccal mucosa and the lateral tongue border. The lesions were circumscribed, flat, smooth, and red in color with a slightly raised white border varying in size from 3 mm to over 1 cm. Duration was between 7 and 14 days and healing transpired without scarring. Follow-up continued for approximately 1 year and at each visit several lesions were seen. The possibility of stress and heredity as positive factors was considered, but with so few reported cases conclusions would be purely speculative. The absence of dermatologic pathology does not aid in establishing a relationship with psoriasis, however there is a microscopic similarity. An almost total lack of clinical symptoms may contribute to this sparse documentation, therefore dental practitioners should be articularly observant when examining oral soft tissues. Further recognition and investigation is necessary before a cause can be discovered.

7/14. erythema migrans--a psoriasiform lesion of the oral mucosa.

    Psoriasiform lesions are unusual occurrences on oral mucosa. Nineteen cases of erythema migrans are presented with a discussion of the literature. Fifty-eight percent of these cases presented with tenderness, pain, or roughness. One case was associated with geographic tongue and two cases with cutaneous psoriasis.

8/14. Multiple, shallow, circinate mucosal erosions on the soft palate and base of uvula.

    stomatitis areata migrans is an uncommon oral disease that may affect mucous membranes other than the tongue or be concomitant with geographic tongue. The clinical appearance emulates geographic tongue at an ectopic site, and the lesions rarely are symptomatic.

9/14. Geographic tongue in two siblings.

    We report two illustrative cases of geographic tongue which occurred in 6- and 4-year-old sisters whose father had fissured tongue. The elder sister had mild atopic dermatitis and nail changes, but there was no family history suggestive of psoriasis. Histologically, the geographic tongue in the elder sister showed the same features as the oral lesions in pustular psoriasis. From a review of the literature we suggest that geographic tongue may be classified into two types, one that commonly occurs in atopics and another that develops as an oral manifestation of pustular psoriasis, although both types show similar histopathological features.

10/14. Nonpainful, erythematous, circinate lesions of a protean nature on a fissured tongue.

    We have presented a case of BMG with concomitant fissured tongue, a not uncommon association for two rather common oral diseases. BMG is relatively simple to recognize, and the diagnosis most commonly is based on clinical appearance and history of the presence of the lesions. Clinicians should be aware, however, of the similarity, clinically and histologically, of lesions of BMG with other, more serious diseases such as psoriasis and Reiter's syndrome. patients with characteristic lesions of BMG should be evaluated closely for signs and symptoms of these other diseases.
