  22. -rare fungal disease
    -inhabitant organism from soil
    -occurs in diabetic/debilitated patients
    -involves nasal cavity, max. sinus, hard palate
  23. Verruca Vulgaris, Condyloma Acuminatum, Focal Epithelial Hyperplasia:
    • Papillomavirus
    • (viral infections)
  24. 1. papillary oral lesion caused by a papilloma virus
    2. oral lesions are less common than skin lesions
    3. lips are one of the most common intraoral sites
    4. white, papillary, exophytic lesion resembling a papilloma
    -Tx: excision of lesion surgically
    Verruca Vulgaris
  25. 1. a benign papillary lesion that is caused by another papillomavirus
    2. transmitted by sexual contact
    3. more common in anogenital region, transmitted to oral cavity via oral sex
    4. lesions on tongue, buccal mucosa, palate, gingival, and alveolar ridge
    -surgical excision
    Condyloma Acuminatum
  26. 1. characterized by presence of multiple whitish to pink nodules distributed throughout oral mucosa
    2. most common in children
    3. asymptomatic and usually resolve on their own
