Thick Upper Lip Vermillion (full upper lip)

Understanding mouth related symptoms and features

Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.

The mouth is a part of the GI tract of the digestive system of the body, a system that includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus. The digestive system is what makes it possible for the body to eat and digest essential nutrients from food.

Sometimes symptoms affecting the mouth can be seen with the eye. Although diagnosing a mouth-related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.

Symptoms relating to the mouth may affect its structure, shape, and/ or function. Some features will affect just the appearance of the mouth while others may affect its ability to function properly as a part of the digestive system.

What is Thick Upper Lip Vermillion (Full upper lip)?

It is when the vermilion, or red of the upper lip, measures two standard deviations above the mean height.

This mean height varies widely amongst ethnic groups and because of this, measurements must be compared against the mean for the same ethnic group.

What should I do next?

In some instances, a full upper lip may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case, fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.

"Our road to a rare disease diagnosis was a 5-year journey that I can only describe as trying to take a road trip with no map. We didn’t know our starting point. We didn’t know our destination. Now we have hope."
