Erosive Stomatitis. Presented by Dr. John H. Meyers. 

History.—  This patient, a 62-year-old female, has had almost continuous erosions of the buccal mucosae for the past two years. The areas of involvement have remained confined to a single patch on each side. I followed the patient from June, 1962, to September, 1962, and during this time there were no lesions noted elsewhere on the mouth or on the skin.Past history is significant in that the patient is diabetic and has been on oral medication with phenformin (D.B.I.) tablets. In August, 1962, tolbutamide (Orinase) was substituted for the phenformin for a period of several weeks without any effect on the course of the lesions.I saw the patient for the last visit on Sept 8, 1962. In the past few months she has been followed at the Dental Clinic at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center.

Examination.—  On each buccal mucosa
