After performing oral sex, a 47-year-old man developed a wound inside his mouth, according to a new case study by a team of dentists from Mexico.

The report titled “Fellatio-associated erythema of the soft palate: an incidental finding during a routine dental evaluation” was published in BMJ Case Reports on June 11.

The unnamed patient from Mexico did not experience any symptoms as the wound was only noticed during a dental check-up at the School of Dentistry at the Universidad de Montemorelos, Nuevo Leon.

The dentists identified fellatio as the cause after the patient informed them that he was sexually active with men and had last performed oral sex three days before the dental appointment.
