Comment:

Oral mucous membrane lesions are a common finding in LE patients and may vary from purely erythematous to discoid or ulcerative lesions.
Oral ulcers are usually shallow, irregularly shaped lesions, located on the hard palate and may be accompanied by a burning or painful sensation.
They may be persistent or recurrent lesions, frequently accompanying disease riesacerbations.
