Abstract

The hyperimmunoglobulin E recurrent-infection syndrome is considered a primary immunodeficiency syndrome characterized by recurrent staphylococcal infections both cutaneous and pulmonary, chronic dermatitis, otitis and sinusitis. Our case report can be interesting for the age of the patient (39 years old), for the absence of visceral lesion and for the development of a peculiar gingival hyperplasia. The review of literature has shown that this kind of gingivitis is not usual but not extraordinary.
