Assessment of mitotic phase distribution in oral epithelial lesions has shown closely similar features in two categories of hyperplastic condition. By contrast, squamous cell carcinomas showed a significantly different mitotic phase distribution with an increased proportion of metaphases suggesting delay or blockage at this phase. Squamous cell papillomas showed an increased proportion of prometaphase mitoses.
