Meaning of Aphthae
Aphthous stomatitis (also termed recurrent aphthous stomatitis, recurring oral aphthae or recurrent aphthous ulceration; from Greek: ἄφθα aphtha, "mouth ulcer") is a common condition characterized by the repeated formation of benign and non-contagious mouth ulcers (aphthae) in otherwise healthy individuals. The informal term canker sores is also used, mainly in North America. - See link


Aphthae in Spanish is Afta
Un afta (del griego antiguo ἄφθαι, aphtai, "quemaduras") es una úlcera superficial, pequeña, redondeada, blanquecina y con borde rojo bien delimitado; de origen desconocido, que aparece durante el curso de ciertas enfermedades. Suele ser recurrente.1 Se forma en la mucosa de la boca o de otras partes del tubo digestivo, o en la mucosa genital; como la presentación más habitual es la orofaríngea, se usa con frecuencia en un sentido más restringido, referido tan solo al afta bucal.2 - See link
