Traumatically induced peripheral osteoma. Report of a case

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol. 1992 Jun;73(6):667-9. doi: 10.1016/0030-4220(92)90006-c.


Osteomas of the jaws are well-defined lesions that can present as an isolated finding or as part of a syndrome (e.g., Gardner's syndrome). The etiology of peripheral osteomas is somewhat controversial. Trauma has been implicated by several authors, and osteoma is presented here as a rather striking lesion with well-defined traumatic origins.
