Oral Squamous Papilloma



Please can you tell me the exact malignant potential of oral squamous papilloma? Only in 50% of cases HPV 6 or 11 or any other is present. What is the exact etiological agent for oral squamous papilloma according to latest studies?


Papilloma is one of the common benign neoplasms of the oral cavity. It is associated with the HPV-6 and 11 subtypes. It does not show malignant transformation. Treatment is surgical excision or laser ablation. Recurrence is very rare.
