Squamous papilloma

Squamous papillomas are exophytic masses of the oral cavity which are most often benign and asymptomatic. They are innocuous lesions that are neither transmissible nor threatening.

The pathogenesis is related to human papillomavirus but there is controversy regarding the viral origin. In this article two cases of squamous papilloma of the oral cavity are presented.
