Angina bullosa hemorrhagica of the soft palate: a case series

Angina bullosa hemorrhagica (ABH) has been described as a benign phenomenon that is characterized by the sudden appearance of a blood blister on the oral mucosa in the absence of an identifiable cause or systemic disorder. The aim of this study was to report a case series of ten patients with ABH recorded between the years of 2008-2010. The authors believe that ABH is neither a specific disease nor an oral manifestation of other disease in particular but it is an unusual reaction of trauma and, biopsy should be restricted for differential diagnosis into both situations when present together: recurrence and trauma not evident.
