Purpose: Since the beginning of the Covid 19 outbreak, many signs of the
disease have been identified. It is known that Covid 19 uses the mouth
area as an entrance to the respiratory tract. As with all diseases,
early diagnosis and treatment is effective in the course of the disease
in Covid 19. We aimed to identify the oral lesions of Covid 19 for
detecting disease at early stages. Methods: Seventy-four patients whom
detected Covid 19 in their nasopharyngeal swab were included in this
study. Results: Fifty-eight of seventy-four patients had oral lesions.
Aphthous-like ulcer was the most common oral lesion (n: 27).
Respectively, other findings were erythema (n: 19) and lichen planus
(n:12). The most common location of lesions was tongue (n: 23).
Respectively, other lesion areas were buccal mucosa (n: 20), gingiva
(n:11) and palate (n:4). Conclusion: In the study, more than half of
Covid 19 patients had oral lesions. Therefore, oral evaluation is
important in early diagnosis in cases whom suspected Covid 19.
