PMID:  18810914     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The role of oral human papillomavirus (HPV) in the incidence of oral carcinoma has increased among traditional non-risk patients under the age 40. This case study describes how a squamous papilloma (attributed to the HPV) was discovered using the VELscope oral screening device. Photographs of the lesion that might help dentists to identify these areas, using both white light and fluorescence visualization with VELscope, are included.
