he paper presents the data of the study on the prevalence of chronic recurrent aphthous stomatitis (HRAS) in the adult population of
different age groups. 1526 persons were examined.Of these, 253 patients (58.49% women and 41.51% men) aged 18 to 82 years were
diagnosed with chronic recurrent aphthous stomatitis. All subjects were divided into 4 age groups: young patients – from 18 to 44 years
old; middle – from 45 to 59 years old; elderly – from 60 to 74 years old; senile age – from 75 to 89 years.The prevalence of HRAS was
found to depend on age group and gender identity. Our study found that middle-aged patients had a higher prevalence of HRAS
(36.75%) than young (33.2%) and elderly patients (18.18%).The lowest prevalence of HRAS is observed in elderly patients and is 11.85%.
Patients of middle and young age groups often need professional treatment and prevention measures.
