Abstract

An 11-year-old male dachshund was found to have a pink cauliflower-like tumor on the gingival mucosa of the lower jaw at the right second and third premolar teeth. No adjacent lymph nodes were swollen. The tumor recurred in spite of repeated surgical removal.
Biopsy revealed that no epithelium was cornified, that few mitotic cells were present, and that keratinization took place in many indivitual tumor cells, which proliferated to infiltrate into the submucosa. As a result, this case was diagnosed as oral florid papillomatosis. It responded satisfactorily to treatment with bleomycin.
