Orofacial granulomatosis (OFG) comprises a group of diseases characterized by noncaseating granulomatous inflammation affecting the soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. The classic presentation of OFG is a nontender recurrent labial swelling that eventually becomes persistent; however, the clinical presentation can be highly variable, making the diagnosis difficult to establish. Herein, we report the rare case of a 15-year-old patient, suffering from OFG and discoid lupus erythematosus; this coexistence of two such rare entities together hardly finds a mention in the literature.
