Abstract

This report presents histopathological evidence of mycotic infection of the gingival epithelium followed by inverted verrucous giant cell epitheliomata of the gingiva. Sections from biopsy tissue revealed intercellular spaces of the parabasal squamous epithelium parasitized by Periodic Acid Schiff stain positive branching septate hyphae and conidia of morphological appearance of Trichophyton. Epithelial cells presented epitheliomatous proliferation with formation of giant cells showing phagocytosed fragments of mold
