BACKGROUND: The patient reported in this study was diagnosed with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia and underwent an allogenic bone marrow transplantation. She was referred for persisting oral ulceration and pain associated with the transplant procedure. AIM: To present an unusual involvement of gingival tissues during a case of oral chronic graft-versus-host-disease. CONCLUSION: This is one of the very few reports in the dental literature of a case of oral chronic graft-versus-host disease that includes the unusual manifestation of prominent gingival lesions.
