Clinical and Radiographic Findings

The patient reported a slowly enlarging lesion in the anterior soft palate and junction of hard palate. It was asymptomatic and non-ulcerated for almost two years but with time it changed color, became larger and ulcerated. At the time of the patient's presentation to the UW Oral Surgery clinic, the lesion was ulcerated (Figure 1) and measured 2.5 x 3.5 cm.
