Chelitis granulomatosa (CG) is a rare disorder characterized by abnormal swelling of the lips which is chronic in nature and it is caused by granulomatous inflammation. This disease may appear independently or may be associated with a Melkersson- Rosenthal syndrome. Here we report a case of chelitis granulomatosa in a 19 year old boy which was successfully treated with intralesional steroid injections.
