Abstract: Α 36-year-old married woman presented for evaluation of three painful chronic ulcers (>1 month duration). Similar oral lesions had been recorded many times in the past, with the first episode reported at 3 months of age. These current ulcers presented after she had a staphylococcal skin infection but were not associated with lymphadenopathy, fever or other general symptomatology.
