Abstract


Irritation fibroma is a reactive hyperplastic lesion caused by chronic stimuli with low intensity in the oral cavity. Irritation fibroma is common in middle-aged females but it may also occur at any age and sex. Clinical characteristics of irritation fibroma are similar to other reactive lesions or benign tumors, therefore, histological examination is essential to make an accurate diagnosis. This case report presents two cases of irritation fibroma occurred on the gingiva in young males. Two male patients in their 20s and 30s of age visited the clinic for the evaluation and treatment of painless gingival overgrowth in the anterior region. Clinically, the lesions were well-defined and firm, with similar color and texture to the adjacent normal gingiva. Excisional biopsy under local anesthesia was conducted with a scalpel, and the lesions were completely removed. Histopathologically, connective tissue consisting of dense collagen bundles, proliferation of fibroblasts and minor infiltrated inflammatory cells were observed. Based on the clinical and histopathological findings, the diagnosis of irritation fibroma was confirmed in both cases.
