Syndromes associated with aphthous ulcers

Author(s): Asrani Mukesh, Patadiya Hiren, Suman Sen

Abstract

Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis (RAS) is a common oral condition which is characterized by formation of recurrent, multiple, small, round or oval ulcers over the oral mucosa. The etiopathogenesis of RAS is still unclear. The diagnosis of this condition is very easy but many times, these ulcers are a part of an underlying disease or syndrome. The main aim of this article is to make the clinicians aware of the underlying syndromes associated with RAS so that appropriate patient care and further management with proper referrals can be arranged. A brief review of the syndromes associated with RAS is described.
