Two Cases of Plasma Cell Cheilitis Treated with Intralesional Injection of Corticosteroids

Abstract

Plasma cell cheilitis is a rare inflammatory disorder which shows a dense, band-like infiltrate of plasma cells in the upper dermis. Although the histological picture is shared with other diseases of the lips, plasma cell cheilitis is not associated with any known dermatoses. Some authors have shown the effectiveness of topical or intralesional corticosteroids; however, there have been many reports describing poor therapeutic response to topical steroids. We de-scribe two patients with plasma cell chielitis whose clinical condition responded rapidly to the intralesional injection of corticosteroids.
