Pediatric oral pathology encompasses a wide clinical spectrum of local and systemic diseases. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical characteristics of oral soft tissue lesions in Greek children and adolescents up to 18 years old. Data available through a 32 year old period revealed that among the 1040 cases analyzed, benign lesions, mainly cysts, inflammatory lesions and reactive hyperplasias, were the most common causes for seeking dental advice during childhood.
