Abstract

Peripheral osteomas of the hard palate are relatively rare. Two cases of osteoma of the hard palate are reported, along with a review of the literature.

Introduction

Craniofacial osteomas may be located either superficially or intraosseously on any bone of the cranium or face or within a paranasal sinus.1 Osteomas are benign osteogenic lesions, characterized by a proliferation of compact (“ivory”) or cancellous bone.2 They are usually asymptomatic and slowly growing, and they may remain stable for many years.3
