A survey of 4342 oral pathology reports accumulated over a five-year period was performed. Diagnoses were 1090 irritation fibromas and 116 giant cell fibromas. A statistical comparison was then made between the giant cell fibromas and the irritation fibromas to determine if there were any differences between these two lesions with respect to sex or race predilection, age distribution, or location in the oral cavity. Finally, various staining techniques were performed on the giant cell fibromas in an attempt to ascertain the origin of the giant cells present in these lesions. The results will be discussed in this paper.
