AUTHOR(S): Kao Ayekinam, El Harti Karima and El Wady Wafaa
ABSTRACT:Focal fibrous hyperplasia is the most common epithelial benign tumor of the oral cavity. It is a localized reactive progressive, proliferation of oral mucosa in response to injury or local irritation. Females are twice more likely to develop fibroma than male. Treatment usually requires total excision and recurrence is rare. This case report describes two cases of focal fibrous hyperplasia, which was successfully treated by surgical excision.
