PMID:  7238103     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Persistent plaques that develop primarily on the face may be caused by a variety of conditions, but rarely is purely intraoral infection the primary cause. A case report is presented in which massive prolonged gingival hyperplasia resulted in a persistent and peculiar purple facial lymphedema. The condition resolved only after the intraoral disease had been successfully treated.
