ABSTRACT

Benign lymphoid hyperplasia (BLH) is a rare type of lymphoproliferative disease of the oral mucosa. The present study reports a 61-year-old man who presented to the hospital with a soft polyp formation in the left buccal mucosa. He was suspected with a granuloma from cracked tooth, and an excisional biopsy was performed under local anesthesia. The histopathological examination of the specimen confirmed BLH. The patient's condition was well and free of disease at 2 years after the surgery. In this present case study, we concluded that BLH may be considered as a differential diagnosis of lymphoid disease in the oral soft tissue.
