A 23-year-old white female was referred for a painless swelling on the retrocomissural mucosa of 1 year’s duration. Intraoral examination revealed a well-defined, broad-based, red-yellowish swelling, measuring 2 cm in its greatest dimension. Its consistency was firm, it had indurated borders, and it exhibited a highly vascularized, lobulated, and nonulcerated surface (Figure 1). Medical history was not contributory, and extraoral examination did not reveal any cervical lymphadenopathy. An excisional biopsy was performed without any complications. The macroscopic examination revealed a firm, brownish solid mass with lobulated surface. No cysticspaces were observed.
