embryos are also typical for Eleocharideae and can be found in some of the largest Abildgaardieae embryos.
The resulting thickening of the epithelium assumes an inverting, fungiform
or combination growth pattern.
This may be related to thresholds,-as female subjects have lower thresholds for all the five basic tastes; explained by the fact that women have more fungiform
papillae, more taste buds than men,-besides other characteristics, including dietary habits, smoking behaviors, alcohol consumption and hormonal factors (Prutkin et al., 2000; Hong et al., 2005; Mojet, Christ-Hazelhof, & Heidema, 2005).
 Batsakis in 1979 based on anatomical site of origin, divided NP into 4 variants: (i) Keratotic Papilloma from nasal vestibule, (ii) IP from the lateral nasal wall, (iii) fungiform
papilloma from the nasal septum (EP), and (iv) cylindrical papilloma from the paranasal sinuses (commonly maxillary sinus).
Three types of the papillae are present on the dorsal surface of the tongue of the Slow Loris and the Pygma Slow Loris: filiform, fungiform
and vallate (Figs.
On repeat physical examination the lesion was a 1-cm, fungiform
, yellow to pink nodule, with central ulceration.
In atrophic luetic glossitis, the dorsal aspect of the tongue assumes a smooth and shiny aspect due to atrophy of filiform and fungiform
papillae, often with areas of leukoplakia presenting as a homogenous white patch (syphilitic leukoplakia) [1, 27, 28].

papillae," Brain Research, vol.
Due to nutritional deficiency in these patients, the filiform papillae disappear first followed by fungiform
papillae; regeneration of papillae occurs in reverse order but vallate and foliate papillae on the posterior third are spared.

taste buds," Neuroscience, vol.
It may differentiate into three types: oncocytic papilloma, fungiform
papilloma, and, the most prevalent, inverted papilloma.
This sensitivity is genetically based, research has found, and is related to the number of mushroom-like structures on the tongue called fungiform
papillae, on which taste buds are perched.
