Abstract: Aphthous stomatitis , recurrent as a recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) , is the most common painful oral mucosal disease , characterized by the repeated formation of benign and non-contagious mouth ulcers (aphthae) in otherwise healthy individuals , The term “aphthous” is derived from a Greek word “aphtha” which means ulceration .affecting approximately % 20 of population. Recurrent aphthous ulceration is a common problem in Jordanian adults Recurrent aphthous ulcers poorly understood mucosal disorder. They occur in men and women of all ages, races and geographic regions, However, to date, no principal cause has been discovered. Since the aetiology is unknown, diagnosis is entirely based on history and clinical criteria and no laboratory procedures exist to confirm the diagnosis However, ulcers that resemble recurrent aphthous stomatitis in some aspects, such as their clinical appearance, can be found in systemic disorders such as Behçet's syndrome, gastrointestinal diseases such as gluten-sensitive enteropathy or inflammatory bowel disease, and immunodeficiency syndromes such as infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or cyclic neutropenia
