Abstract

Hand foot and mouth disease is an acute viral illness caused by the Coxsackie virus. The contagious nature of the disease is threatening as the disease primarily affects the children of school going age. As the name suggests, typical lesions will be seen over the hands, feet and in the oral cavity. The child gets irritated, febrile and lethargic. Oral lesions can add up to the general weakness as the child becomes reluctant to food. Diagnosis can be made based on the clinical features alone. As the disease outbreaks were reported from neighbouring countries like China and other South Eastern countries, awareness amongst the dentists, general physicians and dermatologists usually can play a role in reducing the suffering of the patient. This case report describes about a 3 year old male child presenting with typical ulcerative lesions over the hands, feet and oral mucosa.
