A case of cheilitis granulomatosa, a rare inflammatory disorder of unknown origin is reported. The condition produces non-tender, persistent swelling of one or both lips and primarily affects young adults. The patient had a positive patch test to salicylate and cinnamaldehyde, and was therefore treated with an exclusion diet avoiding these substances. After 4.5 months on the exclusion diet, a 75% reduction in symptoms was reported.
