Flashcards in chpt 12- soft tissue tumors Deck (20):
1

Irritation
Traumatic
Fibrous Hyperplasia
Fibro-epithelial polyp

Fibroma

2

Can occur anywhere
most common buccal mucosa labial mucosa, tongue and gingiva
smoothed-surface, pink nodule
May be keratinized (trauma)
usually sessile

FIbroma

3

treatment for fibroma

excision; rare recurrence

4

sessile and pedunculated

forms of tumefaction for fibromas

5

Younger age than traditional fibroma
50% of cases on gingiva

giant cell fibroma

6

Histology shows large stellate and multinucleated fibroblasts

giant cell fibroma

7

Unilateral or bilateral papular lesions on the gingiva lingual to the canines
Seen mainly in children
Normal anatomic variation that disappears with age

retrocuspid papilla

8

-Tumor-like hyperplasia of fibrous connective tissue that develops in association with the flange of an ill-fitting complete or partial denture


epulis fissuratum

9

Clinical features of this soft tissue lesion include:
-single or multiple folds of hyperplastic tissue
in the alveolar fold .
-usually firm and fibrous.
-usually develops on facial aspect of ridge.
-usually anterior

Epulis fissuratum

10

treatment for epulis fissuratum

-surgical removal
-can RECUR if problem is not corrected

11

-Inflammatory hyperplasia
-Denture injury tumor
-Denture epulis

epulis fissuratum

12

Trauma to tissue can cause 2 things

-tissue breakdown causing an ulcer
-Tissue hyperplasia to protect

13

reactive tissue growth that usually develops beneath a denture

inflammatory papillary hyperplasia

14

-usually on hard palate beneath denture base
-edentulous mandibular alveolar ridge
-can occur on palate due to mouth breathing
-Appears as small pebbles or cobblestones

inflammatory papillary hyperplasia

15

numerous papillary growths covered by hyperplastic stratified squamous epithelium

inflammatory papillary hyperplasia

16

treatment for inflammatory hyperplasia

remove denture allow time to heal, surgical removal of hyperplasia, remake or reline denture

17

Diverse group of tumors that look like a fibroma but have fibrous and histiocytic differentiation. Most commonly occur on the skin as a dermatofibroma

fibrous histiocytomas

18

Fibrous proliferations with a histologic pattern between benign fibrous lesions and fibrosarcoma

fibromatosis

19

locally aggressive with high recurrence rate

fibromatosis

20

head and neck of children and young adults (Juvenile Aggressive Fibromatosis)

fibromatosis
