Oral squamous papillomas are benign tumors of the oral cavity presenting as a verrucous exophytic growth. Most of the papillomas are asscociated with human papilloma virus. The common sites of occurrence include the palatal complex, uvula, tongue and gingiva. Its malignant transformation is documented in other sites such as the trachea and the larynx. With evidence of HPV infections leading to cervical cancer and papilloma in other regions showing malignant transformation the question of whether oral squamous papilloma should be considered a potentially malignant disorder needs to be addressed. An occurrence of a large papilloma on the buccal mucosa, an unusual location is reported here.
