Cheilitis granulomatosa associated with lupus erythematosus discoid and treated with methotrexate: Report of a case

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We present the rare case of a 47-year-old patient, suffering from cheilitis granulomatosa and lupus erythematosus discoid: this association is really exceptional because only once reported in English literature. In addition, the treatment of cheilitis granulomatosa is a challenge for the dermatologist: the gold standard, represented by steroids, is in fact designed as a short-time option. Our report confirms the good efficacy of methotrexate as a steroid-sparing agent.
