Sreedhar Gadiputi, Sumalatha Masineni Narayanappa


Cheilitis Glandularis is an uncommon and rare inflammatory salivary gland disorder affecting the lower lip of adults with various etiological and predisposing factors. Based on clinical and histopathological findings three types of cheilitis glandularis have been described in the literature (i.e. simple, superficial suppurative and Deep Suppurative). The simple type being the most common but malignant changes have been observed in Deep Suppurative type.  We report a case of cheilitis glandularis affecting lower lip in 20 years old female which is rare in that age and sex.
