A 2-year-old child with a fever for 2 days was not eating and was crying often. On examination, the physician noted that the mucous membranes of the mouth were covered with numerous shallow, pale ulcerations. A few red papules and blisters were also observed around the border of the lips. The symptoms worsened over the next five days and then slowly resolved, with complete healing after two weeks
