There are a number of pathological conditions that may affect the lips. Cheilitis glandularis (CG) is a rare disorder characterized by hyperplasia of the labial mucous glands and mixed salivary glands as well as by ectasia of salivary glands ducts. It is a rare condition and most commonly involves the lower lip of adult males with little predilection for females. The exact etiology of this condition is unknown, but various agents have been linked. In this paper, we report a rare case of CG of the superficial suppurative type in a 20-year-old Indian female affecting upper and lower lip which was diagnosed based on clinical and histopathological findings and was treated with steroids. The present case is different because of its occurrence in a young aged female with the involvement of both lips. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment and frequent monitoring and follow-up are necessary to prevent further complications.
