This article highlights cheilitis granulomatosa (CG) of the upper lip in a 6-year-old female child with neglected oral hygiene. CG is a rare, idiopathic, chronic inflammatory disorder presenting as a diagnostic dilemma due to a wide array of etiological factors. There is no standard treatment and often unpredictable therapeutic responses and spontaneous recurrences are reported. This article emphasizes on providing specialized dental treatment for active oral infections as the first line of therapy, especially in pediatric patients as it may turn out to be a major shot in the arm.
