Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Acute streptococcal gingivostomatitis, an acute inflammation of the oral mucosa caused by betahemolytic streptococcus from Group A, has been given little attention in the literature, although it causes severe discomfort and endangers the patient's health. Five new cases of acute streptococcal gingivostomatitis, with a description of its oral and systemic manifestations, are presented in the present article. The differential diagnosis and treatment are discussed, and the literature is reviewed.
