Chronic graft-vs-host disease (cGVHD) is the most common complication of allogenic bone marrow transplantation (BMT).1 Patients with cGVHD present variable multiorgan clinical involvement including oral mucosa and salivary glands.2-4 In particular, lesions of the skin and mucosal surfaces of the head and neck region occur in as many as 75% of patients with cGVHD.5 The aim of this study was to investigate oral, cutaneous, and hepatic involvement of cGVHD.
