Özet

Background Several studies have reported cigarette smoking to have a beneficial protective effect on recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS). In this study, we evaluated once again the incidence of smoking in RAS patients compared with controls. This study differs from most previous ones in that the patients were diagnosed by direct observation of active lesions by a dermatologist.
