Abstract

In line with the data presented in the literature, clinical GvHD manifestations seem to mainly involve the oral and maxillofacial region from an early phase also in paediatric patients. As a consequence, a timely diagnosis and a multidisciplinary treatment programme are essential for the early detection of the oral signs of potential systemic complications, to improve the quality of life of these young patients, as well as to prevent any potential alterations of dentoskeletal development and growth in the child.
