comment:

Hyperplasia of the mucosa is characterized by proliferation of squamous epithelium in the form of papillary folds (arrow, Figure 1image opens in a pop-up window ). It is an uncommon incidental finding and is unlikely to be associated with chemical administration.

recommendation:

This lesion should be diagnosed and given a severity grade.
