Abstract

Background: Plasma cell cheilitis (PCC) is a rare inflammatory disease that occurs on the lip. It is common in elderly people and important a differential diagnosis is actinic cheilitis. Objective: To analyse the clinical and histopathological features of plasma cell cheilitis. Methods: PCC patient's characteristics, treatment method and response, histological findings, and clinical course were evaluated. Results: Of 20 patients, nine (55%) experienced a complete response without relapse and eight (40%) were included in the relapsed group. A band-like infiltration of plasma cells was observed in the dermis of all specimens. Conclusion: As PCC is likely to relapse, periodic status checks and treatment may be necessary.
