This study aimed to identify the best anatomic area of cervical region of corpses to propose an extraoral LLLT protocol for treating HPM, as well as to evaluate odynophagia in patients treated at a universitary hospital in southern Brazil. An anatomic study in corpses was performed selecting the best extraoral site to apply LLLT for treating HPM. Furthermore, statements about extraoral LLLT were reported by patients complaining of odynophagia. The carotid trigone showed to be the best site to perform LLLT. Laser protocol to treat HPM consisted in: infrared, 4 J, 100 mW, and 4 points along the anterior margin of sternocleid...

Pemphigoid of the mucous membranes represents a group of subepithelial blistering diseases of autoimmune origin. The radiation emitted by the low-level laser affects the metabolic processes of the target cells, producing biostimulants that act in the process of regeneration of the tissues. A 34-year-old female patient presented clinically with an erythematous gingiva that was blistering and scaling, with painful and burning symptomatology. An excisional biopsy was performed, sent for histopathologic examination, confirming the diagnosis of mucous membrane pemphigoid.

Lymphomas represent the third most common type of cancer in young people, classified into non-Hodgkin (NHL) or Hodgkin lymphoma. NHL arises when B or T cells, which are involved in the protection, become malignant, growing uncontrollably, "contaminating" the lymphatic system. Characterized by a high degree of malignancy with pathology and immunology of different characteristics. Radiotherapy or chemotherapy are treatments performed for this disease, which may lead to oral manifestations because of its cytotoxicity.

A 60-year-old male patient with a history of chronic drinking and smoking was diagnosed as having squamous cell carcinoma on the tongue beyond surgical therapeutic possibility. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy were indicated. After the fifth cycle of chemotherapy concomitant with radiotherapy, the patient reported pain in the oral cavity, which worsened after the use of methotrexate to treat peripheral neuropathy. The condition progressed to extensive oral ulcers requiring the use of a nasogastric tube for feeding.

Fusariosis is a fungal infection that affects immunocompromised hosts and is mainly fatal in its disseminated form. A 49-year-old male patient with acute myeloid leukemia, hepatic and splenic infiltration, thrombocytopenia, odynophagia, and abdominal pain was referred for evaluation. Clinical examination revealed nasal and small oral ulcers with erythematous halo on the soft palate, and diagnostic hypotheses were bacterial or viral infection. Treatment with cefepime and vancomycin, local hygiene, and low-level laser therapy were adopted, and lesions presented remission.
