AbstractOral lesions commonly diagnosed in newborns and infants include Epstein's pearls, Bohn's nodules, dental lamina cysts and congenital epulis. Nevertheless, intriguing cases which have rarely been reported in the literature are encountered by clinicians. This paper reports a case of an unusual white lesion in a 10-month-old child which resolved spontaneously. However, histological examination proved it to be a foreign body. Clinical Relevance: Infants tend to explore things with their mouths; hence they put anything they can hold into it to determine the size and texture. This case serves to illustrate that the unexpected can occur and that, in children, the differential diagnosis should include a foreign body.
