Molluscum contagiosum (MC) occurring on the face, lips, and perioral region is a relatively common manifestation of this infectious disease. MC of the intraoral mucosa has been documented, but is rare. This report details the case of a 52-year-old HIV-seropositive man with MC of the gingiva. A review of the literature discloses only 4 previously reported cases of intraoral MC.
