Abstract

The Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome consists of a triad of recurrent lip and/or face swelling, fissured tongue, and intermittent facial palsy. Onset of the symptoms may occur during childhood, and treatment of the condition is difficult. We describe two children with Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome in whom combination treatment with prednisone and minocycline proved effective and well tolerated.
