Is orofacial granulomatosis a distinct clinical disorder?


Orofacial granulomatosis is a rare disorder that is heterogeneously defined in the published literature. Herein, we describe a patient with orofacial granulomatosis with clinical and histologic evidence, discuss differential diagnoses, and offer clinical pearls for diagnosing and assessing this disorder. Our case provides support that orofacial granulomatosis is a distinct disorder as opposed to a sequela of other systemic granulomatous diseases. This information will aid dermatologists in decision making and diagnosing the disorder.
