Answer

Swelling is typically chronic. Morbidity related to the disease depends also on whether an underlying organic disease, such as Crohn disease or sarcoidosis, [23] is present. Patients, especially children and adolescents, presenting with what appears to be granulomatous cheilitis or OFG should be very carefully evaluated for gastrointestinal symptoms, signs, and disease.
