Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) or recurrent aphthous an ulcer (RAU) is a common disorder affecting 5% to 66% of examined adult patient groups. There may be a female predominance in some adult and child patient. We report a case of a 30-year old male patient presented a 2-year history of episodes of multiple recurrent ulcers on the ventral surface of anterior part of tongue. Topical application of Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1%, topical lignocaine and systemic vitamin B-complex, caused an improvement of pain, discomfort and healing of the aphthous ulcer. No side effects were recorded.
