Abstract

Fibromas are the most common soft tissue lesions of the oral cavity and are generally attributed to trauma. Koilocytic dysplasia refers to human papillomavirus (HPV)-related epithelial cytopathic effect. Koilocytic dysplasia is considered neoplastic. Herein, we report a case of oral fibroma with HPV-induced dysplastic changes of the surface epithelium confirmed by immunohistochemical stains for p16 and p53 as well as HPV in situ hybridization.
