Circumoral complications in hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy — a case of simple lip reconstruction?

Circumoral complications in hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy — a case of simple lip... We report a case of a 7-year-old Bangladeshi boy who caused himself oral incontinence by self-mutilation. The patient was known to suffer from hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type V. As definitive management, a full dental clearance was performed along with reconstruction of the lower lip with a good functional and aesthetic outcome. He did not experience any adverse effects from the full dental clearance with regard to feeding, nutrition or development. We discuss the dilemma and challenges raised in the management of this patient and highlight the need for a multi-disciplinary specialist input for what appeared to be a simple case of lip reconstruction for a plastic surgeon. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

We report a case of a 7-year-old Bangladeshi boy who caused himself oral incontinence by self-mutilation. The patient was known to suffer from hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type V. As definitive management, a full dental clearance was performed along with reconstruction of the lower lip with a good functional and aesthetic outcome. He did not experience any adverse effects from the full dental clearance with regard to feeding, nutrition or development. We discuss the dilemma and challenges raised in the management of this patient and highlight the need for a multi-disciplinary specialist input for what appeared to be a simple case of lip reconstruction for a plastic surgeon.
