Stomatitis is inflammation of the mouth and lips. It refers to any inflammatory process affecting the mucous membranes of the mouth and lips, with or without oral ulceration. In its widest meaning, stomatitis can have a multitude of different appearances. Common causes include infections, nutritional deficiencies, allergic reactions and many others; when inflammation of the gums and the mouth presents itself, sometimes the term gingivostomatitis is used, though this is sometimes used as a synonym for herpetic gingivostomatitis. The term is derived from the Greek stoma, meaning "mouth", the suffix -itis, meaning "inflammation". Malnutrition or malabsorption can lead to nutritional deficiency states, several of which can lead to stomatitis. For example, deficiencies of iron, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin B9 or vitamin B12 may all manifest as stomatitis. Iron is necessary for the upregulation of transcriptional elements for cell repair. Lack of iron can cause genetic downregulation of these elements, leading to ineffective repair and regeneration of epithelial cells in the mouth and lips.

Many disorders which cause malabsorption can cause deficiencies. Examples include tropical sprue. Aphthous stomatitis is the recurrent appearance of mouth ulcers in otherwise healthy individuals; the cause is not understood, but it is thought that the condition represents a T cell mediated immune response, triggered by a variety of factors. The individual ulcers recur periodically and heal although in the more severe forms new ulcers may appear in other parts of the mouth before the old ones have finished healing. Aphthous stomatitis is one of the most common diseases of the oral mucosa, is thought to affect about 20% of the general population to some degree; the symptoms range from a minor nuisance to being disabling in their impact on eating and talking, the severe forms can cause people to lose weight. There is no cure for aphthous stomatitis, therapies are aimed at alleviating the pain, reducing the inflammation and promoting healing of the ulcers, but there is little evidence of efficacy for any treatment, used.

Inflammation of the corners of the lips is termed angular stomatitis or angular cheilitis. In children a frequent cause is repeated lip-licking, in adults it may be a sign of underlying iron deficiency anemia, or vitamin B deficiencies. Angular cheilitis can be caused by a patient's jaws at rest being'overclosed' due to edentulousness or tooth wear, causing the jaws to come to rest closer together than if the complete/unaffected dentition were present; this causes skin folds around the angle of the mouth which are kept moist by saliva, which in turn favours infection. Treatment involves the administration of topical nystatin or similar antifungal agents. Another treatment can be to correct the jaw relationship with dental treatment; this is a common condition present in denture wearers. It appears as painless mucosa beneath the denture. 90% of cases are associated with Candida species, it is the most common form of oral candidiasis. Treatment is by antifungal medication and improved dental hygiene, such as not wearing the denture during sleep.

Allergic contact stomatitis is a type IV hypersensitivity reaction that occurs in susceptible atopic individuals when allergens penetrate the skin or mucosa. Allergens, which may be different for different individuals, combine with epithelial-derived proteins, forming haptens which bind with Langerhans cells in the mucosa, which in turn present the antigen on their surface to T lymphocytes, sensitizing them to that antigen and causing them to produce many specific clones; the second time that specific antigen is encountered, an inflammatory reaction is triggered at the site of exposure. Allergic contact stomatitis is less common than allergic contact dermatitis because the mouth is coated in saliva, which washes away antigens and acts as a barrier; the oral mucosa is more vascular than skin, meaning that any antigens are more removed from the area by the circulation. There is less keratin in oral mucosa, meaning that there is less likelihood that haptens will form. Allergic contact stomatitis appears as non-specific inflammation, so it may be mistaken for chronic physical irritation.

There may be soreness of the mouth and ulceration. Chronic exposure to the allergen may result in a lichenoid lesion. Plasma cell gingivitis may occur, which may be accompanied by glossitis and cheilitis. Allergens that may cause allergic contact stomatitis in some individuals include cinnamaldehyde, Balsam of Peru, mercury, pyrophosphates, zinc citrate, free acrylic monomer, nickel and sodium lauryl sulfate; these allergens may originate from many sources, including various foods and drink, chewing gum, mouthwash, dental floss, dental fillings, orthodontic bands or wires, many other sources. If the substance containing the allergen comes into contact with the lips, allergic contact cheilitis can occur, together with allergic contact stomatitis; the diagnosis is confirmed by patch test, management is by avoidance of exposure to the al

Action of 17 November 1917

The Action of 17 November 1917 was a naval battle of the First World War. The action was fought between a German U-boat and two United States Navy destroyers in the North Atlantic Ocean. Based in Queenstown, Ireland, USS Fanning and her sister destroyer USS Nicholson patrolled the eastern waters of the Atlantic Ocean, their mission was to escort convoys and rescue survivors of sunken merchant ships as well as to seek out and destroy German U-boats. While escorting the eight vessel convoy OQ-20 eastbound, the two destroyers made contact with an enemy submarine. With Arthur S. Carpender commanding, at 4:10 on 17 November 1917, Coxswain Daniel David Loomis of the Fanning sighted U-58, commanded by Kapitänleutnant Gustav Amberger, when the U-boat had surfaced to extend her periscope; the German submarine lined up for a shot at the British merchant steamer SS Welshman and immediately Officer of the Deck Lieutenant William O. Henry ordered the destroyer to make circles and engage. At 4:00 Fanning dropped three depth charges.

USS Nicholson joined in the fighting, commanded by Frank Berrien, dropped another depth charge herself. The Americans spotted U-58 when it surfaced, Fanning fired three shots with her stern gun. Nicholson struck the U-boat with at least one shot from her bow gun; the Germans unsuccessfully returned fire and surrendered at around 4:30. American fire had hit the submarine near its diving planes. Kapitänleutnant Amberger ordered the ballast tanks blown and the submarine went up. Charges knocked out the main generator aboard the Fanning. If U-58 had surfaced in a battle ready position, Fanning would have been attacked and sunk; the German submariners surrendered and Fanning maneuvered to take prisoners. That ended the action with an American victory; the Fanning and Nicholson's sinking of U-58 was one of only a few engagements of World War I in which U. S. Navy warships sank an enemy submarine; the first time U. S. ships sank a submarine in combat. Lieutenant William O. Henry and Coxswain Daniel Lommis both received a Navy Cross for their actions during their encounter with U-58.

Fanning and Nicholson continued the war escorting and patrolling the North Atlantic, making several more inconclusive contacts with German submarines. Thirty-eight of the 40 crew members of the U-58 survived to become prisoners of war in the United States.
