Orofacial granulomatosis.
Children with Crohn's disease sometimes present with predominantly oral and anal pathology. Sometimes orofacial granulomatosis can occur. Note the edema of the lower lip and inflammatory change affecting the right cheek. There was edema and inflammation affecting the buccal mucosa. This phenomenon, sometimes known as the Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome, as well as being associated with Crohn's disease, can sometimes occur in other granulomatous disorders infiltrating the lymphatic channels, such as sarcoidosis.
