COSTA HANEMANN, João Adolfo et al. Congenital double lip associated to hemangiomas: report of a case. Med. oral patol. oral cir. bucal (Ed.impr.) [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.2, pp.155-158. ISSN 1698-4447.

Double lip is a developmental abnormality which may occur either isolated or as a component of Ascher´s syndrome. A case of congenital double lip associated to hemangiomas and enlargement of the thyroid is reported. The oral and facial hemangiomas were excised under local anesthesia. Surgical reconstruction of the upper lip was done in order to reduce the interference with speech and mastication. The recognition and treatment of these abnormalities are discussed.

Keywords : double lip; Ascher's syndrome; hemangioma.
