Broken and painful corners of the mouth in patients is no stranger to us all. Cheilitis angularis is a common diagnosis. Cheilitis angularis is an inflammation of the corner(s) of the mouth characterised by fissuring, maceration and erythema of the lips and adjacent skin. Common causative agents are Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus, which is why the treatment protocols are based on them. In addition to Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus, several pathogens can cause Cheilitis angularis. The article below is a case report of a patient with a gram negative bacterium. Microbiological examination provided valuable information and led to patient-specific treatment.

If you also have an unsolved case and would like to take a further microbiological look, please contact us.
