Oral Fibromas and Fibromatoses

Background

Fibrous growths of the oral soft tissues are fairly common and include a diverse group of reactive and neoplastic conditions. Some of these conditions are discussed elsewhere in Medscape Drugs & Diseases. For example, the term epulis fissuratum refers to epithelial and fibrous hyperplasia specifically related to, and the result of, trauma from the border of a removable denture. It may be viewed as the mucosal counterpart of acanthoma fissuratum.

See the image below depicting fibrous tumorlike growth of the oral soft tissues.
