Intraoral hyperplastic Fordyce granule with destruction of bone: A case presentation
Bingisser, Andreas C. / Körner, Meike / Reichart, Peter A. / Bornstein, Michael M.
Fordyce granules of the oral mucosa are often discovered during routine dental examinations. They are considered anatomic variations and are typically seen on the labial and buccal mucosa in adults. The present case report describes for the first time in the literature an atypical location of an enlarged Fordyce granule with local bone destruction. The diagnostic process, surgical treatment, and follow-up are presented and discussed.
