Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of midline lethal granuloma in a 28-year- old female Nigerian patient is reported. Oral, ocular and nasal lesions were present and these preceded a spontaneous abortion of a three month old pregnancy. The clinical course of the disease and its similarity to other granulomatous diseases, which are generally classified as midline granuloma syndrome, are highlighted. The prognosis is poor but early diagnosis and treatment appears to improve a patient's condition
