Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome: Review of the literature and case report of a 10-year misdiagnosis


Pages: 265-269
PMID: 10332378

Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome is classically described as a triad of orofacial swelling, facial palsy, and fissured tongue. More often this syndrome presents in its oligosymptomatic forms.
