Abstract

Oral focal mucinosis (OFM) is an uncommon clinicopathologic entity which is considered to be the oral counterpart of cutaneous focal mucinosis. It is comprised of a clinically-elevated mass with a histological feature of localized areas of myxomatous connective tissue. We herein report a case of oral focal mucinosis in a child, plus a review of the literature.
