Human papilloma viruses constitute a heterogeneous viral group; their genome is made up of a helicoidal double-stranded DNA molecule with a protein capsid. There are over 230 HPV types (118 of them well characterized; more than 40 are anal-genital types, out of which 15 are oncogenic). In humans they represent one of the viral groups which more frequently infect epithelium of skin and mucosae, conjunctive tissue, oral cavity, larynx, and bronchial tree among others. Oral mucosa squamous papilloma, caused by genotypes 33 and 32, is the most frequently found papillary lesion and represents 2.5% of all lesions of the oral cavity, larynx, bronchial tree, esophagus, bladder anus and genital tract. The aim of the present study was to conduct a literature review on oral papillomatosis as well as to review a clinical case.
