Abstract

Erythema multiforme (EM) is an uncommon, acute inflammatory vesiculobullous disorder affecting the skin and/or mucous membranes. The oral variant of this condition is even more uncommon. Here we present a case of herpes-associated EM affecting the oral cavity where the skin lesions, which were considered the “sine qua non” for EM diagnosis, were absent. The case was promptly and precisely diagnosed and treated using a standardized regime of systemic corticosteroid therapy with supportive care to which he responded well and continues to be disease-free at 1 year follow-up.
