Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is one of the most common epithelial malignancies affecting the oral cavity with different clinical presentations. Carcinomas of the gingiva constitute approximately 10% of OSCCs and can mimic reactive, inflammatory conditions of the gingiva, leading to a diagnostic delay. Therefore it is of great importance to diagnose the lesion early for good prognosis. This article reports a rare case of gingival OSCC in a 39-year-old male patient mimicking an inflammatory gingival mass.
