Foreign body simulating a hard palate lesion in a child

Academic Article


  • Foreign bodies embedded in the palate are unusual findings and can occasionally mimic other types of oral cavity pathology. We present a case report of a foreign body in the palate of a infant girl which mimicked an odontogenic cyst. A review of the literature and a brief discussion of the differential diagnoses are included.
