Abstract Exfoliative cheilitis, one of a spectrum of diseases that affect the vermilion border of the lips, is uncommon and has no known cause. However, factors such as stress and some psychiatric conditions are associated with the onset of the disease. This condition is dis-abling because esthetics and normal functions such as eating, speaking and smiling are compromised. The lack of specific treatment makes exfoliative cheilitis a chronic disease that radically affects a person’s life. This report attempts to further investigate the clin-ical course of the disease and provides detailed illustrations of the cyclical nature of the disease.
