Acute myeloid leukemia is a bone marrow malignancy in which blasts count increases by more than 20% in the bone marrow. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHCT) is a treatment option for these patients with high risk of graft versus host disease (GVHD) development. Chronic GVHD (cGVHD) often mimics a variety of autoimmune conditions such as systemic lupus erythematous or systemic sclerosis. Sclerotic cGVHD has a wide spectrum of oral manifestations, including mucosal atrophy, microstomia, and hyposalivation. This report presents a full-mouth implant-retained reconstruction in a 35-year-old male patient who had undergone alloHCT for treatment of acute myeloid leukemia and developed sclerotic cGVHD afterwards. Implant-retained prosthetics might be a practicable treatment for patients with these complications.
