Chronic gingival hyperplasia. Point out the incorrect statement:
It is common to observe a mild to moderate inflammatory process composed of lymphocytes and plasma cells associated.
The main cells of this lesion are epithelial, with marked pleomorphism and high mitotic range.
There is a proliferation of mature collagen fibers and fibroblasts between among epithelial cord.
Erosions and ulcers of the superficial epithelium can be observed.

Clinically, chronic gingival hyperplasia corresponds to (points to true):
Lesion associated with plaque and dental calculus that causes a diffuse chronic inflammatory gingivitis with severe epithelial hyperplasia.
Neoplastic process of the gingival mucosa typical of brachycephalic breeds.
Focal lesion that affects the mucosa surrounding the canine teeth mainly in the English Setter.
Multifocal tumoral- like lesion associated with mandibular prognathism.

Chronic gingival hyperplasia is:
Frequent in the Boxer.
Clinically is not important process, it is only an aesthetic problem.
Located in the gingiva of the lower jaw.
Highly aggressive process that requires the removal of the affected bone.

The differential diagnosis of benign neoplasms of the oral cavity includes:
Fibroma, gingival hyperplasia and melanoma.
Fibrosarcomas and signet ring cell carcinomas.
Chronic gingival hyperplasia, epulis and fibromas.
Squamous cell and epulis carcinoma.

What type of injury is chronic gingival hyperplasia?
Benign tumor lesion corresponding to a fibromatous epuli derived from the periodontal ligament.
Malignant neoplastic process with good prognosis.
Chronic reactive inflammatory process.
Benign tumor lesion corresponding to a fibroma.
