Oral traumatic ulcerations are reactive lesions that are characterized by an intense mononuclear inflammatory infiltrate (usually eosinophils) that may mimic neoplasia. These granulomas are chronic but self limiting lesions of oral mucus membrane, usually of tongue. Though traumatic ulcerations are common, they are not frequently reported. Here we present a case report of traumatic ulcerative granuloma with stromal eosinophilia of tongue with a brief review of literature.
