Molluscum Contagiosum of the Buccal Mucosa

Molluscum Contagiosum of the Buccal Mucosa Abstract Molluscum contagiosum is usually seen on the skin. An instance of involvement of the eyelids, close to the conjunctiva, is recorded by Blank,1 with an excellent illustration by Ronchese. As far as I know, there is no report of molluscum contagiosum of the mucous membrane. A 43-year-old white woman was seen, complaining of a bleeding tumor of the mouth of three weeks' duration. She stated that the lesion had been present for about seven months but had caused no discomfort. Examination revealed a nodular lesion involving the vestibular surface of the lower labial mucosa, measuring 1.5 mm. in diameter, with firm consistency. The surface was hemorrhagic, and the surrounding mucosa showed superficial purulent discharge. The rest of the body revealed no abnormalities. A tentative diagnosis was made of an infected mucous cyst or granuloma pyogenicum. Pathological examination proved it to be molluscum contagiosum. This References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Molluscum contagiosum is usually seen on the skin. An instance of involvement of the eyelids, close to the conjunctiva, is recorded by Blank,1 with an excellent illustration by Ronchese. As far as I know, there is no report of molluscum contagiosum of the mucous membrane. A 43-year-old white woman was seen, complaining of a bleeding tumor of the mouth of three weeks' duration. She stated that the lesion had been present for about seven months but had caused no discomfort. Examination revealed a nodular lesion involving the vestibular surface of the lower labial mucosa, measuring 1.5 mm. in diameter, with firm consistency. The surface was hemorrhagic, and the surrounding mucosa showed superficial purulent discharge. The rest of the body revealed no abnormalities. A tentative diagnosis was made of an infected mucous cyst or granuloma pyogenicum. Pathological examination proved it to be molluscum contagiosum. This References 1.
