Figure 1: Clinical and histopathological features of patients. (a) Clinical features of the two monozygotic twin brothers; we observe that in one brother the upper lip is more prominent and in the other one, the lower lip is more prominent. (b), (c) Clinical aspect of the fissured tongue in two brothers. (d) The histopathological feature, low magnification: abundant inflammatory lymphocyte infiltration at the interface between epidermis and dermis, marked edema of the stroma with focal sketching of pseudovascular spaces without endothelial cell wall, filled with edema; fibrosis, small histiocytic aggregates, vascular structures with stasis, and a perivascular lymphocytic infiltrates, without granulomas. The aspect described at histology may occur within a granulomatous cheilitis that associates a lichenoid reaction.
