Multifocal epithelial hyperplasia: report of 3 cases


Multifocal epithelial hyperplasia (MEH) is a rare disorder characterized by multiple painless discrete and soft flattened papules on the oral mucosa. It is caused by human papilloma virus 13 and 32. The frequency of this disease varies widely from one geographic region to another. Generally it is very rare in Asia. Herein we report 3 Iranian cases with oral lesions, which showed clinical and histopathological characteristics of MEH disease. Two of them were siblings and HPV13 was detected in one of the patients.
