- The fibroma is the most common benign soft-tissue tumor found in the oral cavity and most commonly occurrs in sites predisposed to irritation or trauma. Treatment is conservative surgical excision. Seldom does the lesion recur. A 14-year old girl was referred to the Department of Pediatric Dentistry for evaluation and management of a mass on the palate. The patient's parents reported the slow growth of this soft tissue lesion over a 6-month period. A history of trauma or irritable habits was denied. Clinical examination revealed an asymptomatic, soft, pedunculated elevation of mucosa, measuring 3cm in diameter. Excisional biopsy of the lesion supported a diagnosis of fibroma. There have been no signs of recurrence during follow up of 4 years after surgical intervention. The clinical picture, pathology and management of the case are described, and the differential diagnosis and treatment are discussed.
