Viral Infections of Oral Cavity

Viral diseases/infections of the oral cavity, oral mucosa and perioral regions are generally encountered by dentists and have not received the required recognition until recently and viruses are both - ulcerogenic and the tumorigenic agents of human oral cavity. The plethora of mammalian viruses in the lesions seen in periodontitis proposes that viruses play a significant role in oral diseases than earlier recognized. One of the most crucial target of oral microbiology in future would be to arbitrate the diversity, magnitude, frequency, pathogenicity, treatment and prognosis of oral viruses and the infections they cause.

Human Herpes virus (HHV) and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) are liable for the most prevalent primary viral infections; with HPV having received crucial scrutiny, as high-risk strains of HPV have been associated with few cases of oral squamous cell carcinoma. However there are numerous other viruses that can cause oral infections in the oral cavity. Some of the viruses that are associated with oral cavity diseases/infections are Cox Sackie Virus, HHV, HPV, Measles Virus, Mumps Virus and Rubella Virus.
