Abstract

Introduction: Hematologic deficiency appears to be an etiologic factor in some patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS). The aim of this study was to investigate serum Iron, Zinc and Ferritin levels in patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis referring to oral medicine department of Zahedan dental school. Materials &amp; Methods: In this cross sectional analytical study, 30 individuals with aphthous lesions, 17 female and 13 male (case group) and 30 subjects without aphthous lesions, 17 female and 13 male (control group) were selected. All of patients referring to Oral Medicine Department of Zahedan Dental Faculty examined by Oral Medicine Specialist and diagnosis of recurrent aphthous stomatitis were conducted based on clinical criteria including round and symmetrical ulcers that covered by a yellowish white, removable membrane and are less than 1 cm in diameter and heal without scarring and encircled by an erythematous halo. 10 cc blood samples were taken from all the individuals and Iron, Zinc and Ferritin levels of them were measured. For statistical analysis we used Student t-test (P<0.05). Results: This study showed that the average serum Iron level in the case group was 90.92±31.8 mg/dl and in control group was 107.84±39.27 mg/dl. The average serum Ferritin level in the case group was 69.79±54.76 ng/dl and in control group was 87.82±83.92 n/dl. The average serum zinc level in the case group was l17.11±23.52 mg/dl and in the control group was 108.07±41.45 mg/dl. There was no significant difference between the two groups (P>0.05). Conclusion: According to the results, serum Iron, Zinc and Ferritin was not significantly different between the patient and control groups (P>0.05).
