LOPEZ-TORRES HIDALGO, Jesús; GARCIA ATIENZA, Eva María; SAEZ MORENO, Miguel Ángel  and  CASTANO DIAZ, Marta. Exfoliative cheilitis. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp.21-23. ISSN 2386-8201.

Exfoliative cheilitis is characterized by recurrent desquamation of the labial border, with erythema and crusting. Although its etiology is unknown, apart from the possible intervention of the agents that cause acute cheilitis, there are usually psychological disorders or stress situations that seem to contribute to its development.

We present the case of a 19-year-old patient diagnosed with exfoliative cheilitis.
