A qualitative and quantitative immunohistological investigation was performed on biopsies of oral ulcers from patients with Behcet's syndrome (BS) and those with recurrent oral ulcers (ROU). The results were compared with control oral biopsies from patients with other diseases and normal oral mucosa. The expression of HLA-DR on the cell membrane of keratinocytes was found in 13 out of 15 lesions from patients with BS and ROU, as compared with only one out of 15 controls. The relative density of… CONTINUE READING
