Plasma cell gingivitis was identified during the early 1970s as an allergic reaction to a component in a chewing gum. The clinical picture was described as bright erythema of the entire gingiva, loss of stippling and generalized swelling. Today, many allergens appear to be responsible for this problem. This report presents an unusual case of soft-tissue plasmacytosis in a totally edentulous patient, which may have been related to the use of a household and kitchen cleaning solution on the prostheses.
