Sažetak

Objectives: Propolis, a resinous substance produced by bees, has been used in popular medicine for more than 2000 years. Material and methods: Numerous compounds of propolis can act as potent sensitizers. Topical application of propolis can induce oral lesions. Patients with oral lesions due to topical propolis are presented. Basic demographic (age, gender) and clinical data (appearance and localization of the lesions, symptoms onset, treatment and healing time) were recorded. Results: Twenty two patients with propolis-induced lesions were evaluated. The most common occurring presentation was erosive stomatitis. Symptoms tended to appear 2.5 days after propolis use although some lesions occurred immediately after utilization. Majority of patients (21/22) were successfully treated with topical corticosteroids. Six patients underwent patch testing, 3 patients were positive and 3 were negative. Conclusion: Topical propolis can have serious oral side effects. Current knowledge does not support its widespread use in the treatment of oral diseases.
