Main Article Content

Worachai Charoensawan


The author reported a 28 year-old Thai woman with oral soft tissue mass incidentally found during annual scaling. The mass was round, cauliflower-like, and originated from the junction between hard and soft palate. Its size was 1.5 x 2 cm and 0.5 cm thick. It could be moved or rotated freely around a small stalk of its base and white-pale pink in color. She had experienced this mass for 18 years without any symptoms or troubles. Total excision was performed and the pathological findings revealed squamous papilloma. At the 3 years of postoperative follow-up, the palate completely healed without any recurrence
