Abstract

The authors present a case of a rare highly malignant condition that initially appeared clinically and histologically to be the relatively common and benign condition necrotizing gingivitis. Conditions that do not follow the expected clinical course mandate further investigation because rare malignant disease is not foremost in the mind of dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
