I'll post the correct answer in three days.
vit c deficiency
strawberry gums / hyperplastic gingivitis
Wegener's Granulomatosis (location Gingivia)
Wegener's granulomatosis gingiva - strawberry gums
That's right, it's Wegener's granulomatosis.
This is an example of a systemic auto immune vasculitis, in which many organs can become affected. Common consequences include acute renal failure, upper airway pathology (e.g. perforated nasal septum or frequent nose bleeds) and the characteristic strawberry gums like in this case.
