VIOLA-RHENALS, Maricela; LOPEZ ARRIETA, Zulieth  and  ESCALANTE FONTALVO, Manuel. Focal epithelial dysplasia caused by the use of a sole family toothbrush. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2013, vol.6, n.3, pp.172-174. ISSN 2386-8201.

Focal epithelial dysplasia is one of the pathologies belonging to the group of infections caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), related to types 13 and 32. It is transmitted by direct or indirect contact with infected secretions, with its preferred population group being children, whose risk is greater if inadequate health conditions and bad hygiene practices are present in the family. Treatment is dependent on the evolution of lesions, which in the majority of cases remit spontaneously, in which case, observation is sufficient. In more severe cases, cryotherapy, surgery and acetic acid can be used.

Keywords : Focal epithelial dysplasia; hygiene; professional-family relations; mouth diseases.
