ANGINA BULLOSA HEMORRHAGICA: A CASE REPORT
Dr. Ashwani Rana and Dr. Prajul Mehta*
Angina bullosa hemorrhagica (ABH) is an enigmatic oral disorder described for the first time by Badham in 1967 to define blisters with a hematic content in the oral cavity and oropharynx unrelated to any haematological, dermatological or systemic disease. This process is considered nowadays to have a multifactorial etiopathogenesis, where mild oral traumatisms can trigger the blisters in susceptible individuals. The haemorrhagic bullae spontaneously burst after a short time resulting in ragged, often painless, superficial erosions that heal spontaneously within 1 week without scarring. We present the case of a 35 year old female with Angina bullosa hemorrhagica.
