A massive growth at atypical location- a rare case report
Keywords:Fibroma, Hard Palate, Swelling
Idiopathic fibrous hyperplasia is one of the most common lesions of all oral fibrous tumor like growths. It is a benign neoplasm and usually associated with local irritation. Its presence at unique location makes it even more interesting to study and understand. A 30-year-old systemically healthy male patient presented to the Department of Periodontics with the chief complaint of swelling in an unusual location on the hard palate. Clinically, the swelling was firm, solitary and pedunculated. Radiographs displayed no hard tissue involvement. Treatment comprised of combined approach using both electrosurgery and scalpel. Thus, it can be concluded that fibromas of the oral soft tissues include a diverse group of reactive and neoplastic conditions. Therefore, lot of expertise and knowledge is required for proper diagnosis and treatment planning.
