Strawberry gingivitis as the first presenting sign of Wegener’s granulomatosis: report of a case.

A case of strawberry gingivitis as the first presenting sign of Wegener’s granulomatosis affecting a 50-year-old Malay male is reported here.

The abstract is here.

What I have to say: WG can affect multiple systems in the body. In my case my first presenting symptom was conjunctivitis. Others have sinus problems and allergies. So if the doctors are stumped, suggest that they check you for Vasculitis.

    To Chris – I don't allow links from my blogs unless you ask me first. BTW Strawberry gingivitis is much different than gingivitis caused by plaque… It is a precursor to a set of inflammatory diseases labeled Vasculitis.
