Oral-facial ganulomatosis (OFG) is a chronic inflammatory disorder characterized by inflammation in a variable number of sites in the oral cavity. Its cause remains unclear but a possible role of sensitivity to dietary components, specifically benzoates and cinnamon, has been proposed. 25 patients attending a joint oral medicine/gastro clinic with a diagnosis of OFG were offered a cinnamon and benzoate free diet as their primary treatment. Patients were given verbal and written advice by a dietitian to follow the diet for a minimum of 6 weeks.
