Inflammatory papillary hyperplasia is a benign, predominantly inflammatory lesion incriminating the oral mucosa. Inflammatory papillary hyperplasia is engendered secondary to chronic trauma and lesions are commonly discerned within the hard palate. Inflammatory papillary hyperplasia usually arises due to employment of dentures and is categorized as type III denture stomatitis. The essentially benign inflammatory papillary hyperplasia may be misinterpreted as a potentially malignant disorder [1].
