Abstract: Many lesions in the oral cavity have papillary appearance, among them oral squamous papillomas are most common with predilection for mucosa of hard and soft palate, tongue and uvula. Its clinical appearance sometimes mimics an epithelial malignancy, similar to verrucuous carcinoma or condylomaacuminatum. Although viral origin of human papillomavirus infection is accepted, there is slight controversy regarding its pathogenesis. In this article we report a case of oral squamous papilloma occurring on lateral border of tongue with recurrence.
Key words: Human papilloma virus, exophytic growth, lateral border of the tongue, recurrence.
