  • The vulgar wart is a rare benign lesion in the oral mucosa and, with the highest prevalence in the lip and soft palate. Clinically they are pink, sessile lesions, usually less than a 1 cm in diameter. Case report: Female patient of 9 years and 2 months of age, without medical history of interest, goes for dental assessment to the Master of Integral Pediatric Dentistry of the International University of Catalonia (IIC), Sant Cugat del Vallés, Barcelona. Clinically, a primary lesion in the lower lip is observed, apparently compatible with a warty proliferative warty growth, 0.3cm of pink, asymptomatic, rough to palpation, adhered to the surface of the mucosa, and that does not detach the scraping. The presumptive diagnosis was “vulgar wart”, of unknown etiology. At 15 days of control, an outpatient excisional biopsy was performed for his histopathological study. The report confirmed the initial diagnosis: vulgar wart. Monitoring: complete tissue healing and without recurrence of the lesion after the follow -up of 1 year. Conclusion: Oral mucosa lesions can be of great variability, the insight of the pediatric dentistry being of great importance.
