Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome consists of facial paralysis, facial edema, and scrotal tongue (lingua plicata). Granulomatous cheilitis, frequently associated with the name of Meischner, is generally accepted as a monosymptomatic form of the same syndrome, affects both sexes equally. The earliest manifestations usually develop in childhood or adolescence. We report a case in a 20-year-old woman in order to increase awareness of this entity, in both its classical and aberrant forms.
