Abstract

Elastofibromas of the oral cavity are rare, with only 5 cases reported. In this paper, we present a series of five new cases of oral elastofibromatous lesions, occurring in 4 males and 1 female, with ages ranging from 33 to 76 years. The clinical differential diagnosis includes fibroepithelial polyp or fibroma, among other connective tissue tumours. Elastofibromas probably develop as reactive lesions, for which surgical treatment is definitive.
