Title: A Melkersson Rosenthal Syndrome Case with No Histological Granuloma
Author: Eltohami, Yousif Idris; Hamad, Bahiya Elrashid; Ahmed, Hussam Eldin M
Abstract: Melkersson Rosenthal syndrome is a unique syndrome that often falls off the differential diagnosis list. Its cause is unclear and the suggested hypotheses are multiple. This is a case of a 29 year old Sudanese female with a classical triad of Melkersson Rosenthal syndrome; with upper lip swelling, fssured tongue and facial palsy. It is rare for the syndrome to appear with the classical triad with a percentage of 25% of the cases. It all started a year ago, with a painless non-pitting swelling and later she developed facial palsy. Although histopathological investigation did not reveal any granulomatous formation, the swelling regressed on prescription of prednisolone and the facial palsy gradually disappeared. The presence of granuloma or the triad is not compulsory for the diagnosis of the syndrome.
