The lesion merges with surrounding skin when diascopy
Besides, the classic appearance is described as "apple jelly nodules" observed on diascopy
test, blanching was seen in the upper and lower lip and maxillary gingival on the right side [Figure 7].
These lesions disappear on diascopy
and reappear on relieving pressure .
, performed by applying pressure on the lesion with a glass slide, showed that the lesion had an ischemic pattern.
This haemorrhagic point can be recognized easily by diascopy
. In contrast, a highly sensitized person will react immediately and may develop a wheal up to 15cm across (6 inches).
Apple-jelly-like nodules were absent on diascopy
. Examination of the oropharynx revealed that the right tonsillar fossa had a deep ulcer with prominent edges, and that it was covered with necrotic debris (figure 1, B).
, these nodules show as diagnostic apple jelly color.
The central areas demonstrated a bruised appearance that did not resolve with diascopy
However clinical tests such as diascopy
and laboratory investigations such as blood test are useful to reach the definitive diagnosis of hemangioma; on the other hand mucocele is usually associated with a traumatic injury and commonly occurs on the lower lip .
No fading was observed when diascopy
was applied to the nodule.
Apple- jelly color was seen when examined by diascopy
. There was no regional lymphadenopathy, and systemic examination revealed no abnormalities.
