Human herpesviruses and human papillomaviruses are ubiquitous and may cause an array of oral disease. Herpesviruses are unique because recurrent localized disease occurs after the primary infection. Human papillomaviruses are known for their ability to produce benign epithelial proliferations and increasingly are implicated in the development of oral cancer. This article reviews the pathogenesis of common oral lesions induced by these viruses.
