Introduction: Lymphomatoid papulosis is a primary CD 30+ cutaneous lymphoproliferation. Observation: We report the case of a 39-year-old patient who presented with ulcers on the back of the tongue, gums, buccal mucosa, and soft palate, which evolved as spontaneously regressive flare-ups. The diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease was initially proposed. Several years later, the patient presented an ulcer on the left middle finger. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of lymphomatoid papulosis. Discussion: This chronic dermatosis manifests a single rash or multiple papulonodular rashes, evolving as spontaneously regressive flare-ups. Mucosal involvement is rare, and no prognostic factor for this location has been highlighted to this date. Pathological examination is essential. Conclusion: The mucosal involvement of lymphomatoid papulosis is one of the diagnoses to be considered for recurrent mouth ulcers.
Key words: oral lymphomatoid papulosis / diagnosis / oral mucosal disease
