Medical Definition of Focal epithelial hyperplasia

1. Hyperplasia of the mucous membrane of the lips, tongue, and less commonly, the buccal mucosa, floor of the mouth, and palate, presenting soft, painless, round to oval sessile papules about 1 to 4 mm in diameter. The condition usually occurs in children and young adults and has familial predilection, lasting for several months, sometimes years, before running its course. A viral aetiology is suspected, the isolated organism being usually the human papilloma virus. (12 Dec 1998)
