Follicular lymphoid hyperplasia of the palate is a benign lymphoproliferative lesion of unknown pathogenesis. It presents usually in female patients as a painless, firm, well-demarcated, usually nonulcerated, slow-growing lesion on the palate that histopathologically may resemble a lymphoma. The authors describe a patient with this condition that was successfully treated with intralesional steroid injections. Previously reported cases were reviewed to assess the results of various treatment modalities and disease-free outcome. A nonsurgical approach to the management of follicular lymphoid hyperplasia may have better patient acceptance and satisfaction without recurrence.
