A six year old boy was brought to the department of Oral Medicine and Radiology of the Tamil Nadu Government Dental College, Chennai, India, in December 2017 with a complaint of growths on his upper and lower front teeth region for the past one month. On clinical examination, there were two pinkish pedunculated growths: 1 on the incisive papilla and the other on the attached gingiva of erupting mandibular central incisors [Figure 1]. A similar growth was earlier noticed on his tongue tip which got severed while he was playing. Within a period of one week thereafter, a similar growth was observed on the incisive papilla region which grew in size gradually in the next two weeks and then started contacting attached gingiva of erupting mandibular central incisors. After one week, another growth arising from the attached gingiva of erupting mandibular central incisors was noticed. No similar lesions were present elsewhere on the patient's body, and the patient's medical history was non-contributory. The growths were clinically diagnosed as papillomas and excised surgically. The histopathological report confirmed the clinical diagnosis of squamous papilloma [Figure 2] and [Figure 3]. Usually, the oral papillomas present as single entity with very less virulence and no contagious potential. In this case there were multiple sites of occurrence including tongue, incisive papilla and lower mandibular attached gingiva. Three month follow up showed satisfactory healing and no recurrence [Figure 4].
