Focal epithelial hyperplasia or Heck’s disease is a benign, rare viral disease of the oral cavity and is associated with human papillomavirus 13 and 32 (HPV-13 and HPV-32). Most patients are children but adults may also be at risk. Clinically, the patients have multiple small white or pink papules on the mucosal surface of the lips, buccal mucosa and the tongue. In Iran, this disease seems to be rare. Herein, we describe an adult Iranian case of focal epithelial hyperplasia.
