Background. Oral mucosa and periodontal lesions occurrence in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and Crohn Disease (CD).
Methods. This study involved 100 patients examined for 5 years (1990/1995), with a clinical and histopathological diagnosis of CD (21 patients) and UC (79 patients).
Results. The analysis of the data obtained, from our sample, showed that 5 patients out of 100 presented aphtha minor lesions; in 3 cases the diagnosis was, respectively, of two neoformations of the genian mucosa ­ which turned out to be a papilloma and a fibroma ­ and a retrocommissural leukoplakia, degree OIN I. The 50% of our patients presented parodontal lesions, oral candidosis in 15 out of 67 patients who presented a whitish coating on the back of the tongue.
Conclusions. The results of this investigation, lessen the importance of an association between IBD and oral diseases.
