MUNOZ LEDO, Thalia Sánchez; HINOJOSA AGUIRRE, Alejandro; PORTILLO GUERRERO, Germán  and  TENORIO ROCHA, Fernando. Supernumerary teeth in primary dentition associated to palatal polyps: Case report. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.3, pp.170-174. ISSN 1870-199X.

Polyps are rare in children. The present article reports the clinical case of a 14 month old male patient brought for treatment to the Pedodontics Clinic of the Graduate School, National School of Dentistry National University of Mexico. He presented two palatal fibro-epithelial polyps, located at both sides of the incisive papilla. 10 days after surgical excision, a supernumerary tooth erupted in the palate. 25 days later, eruption of a second supernumerary tooth was observed. Both teeth were extracted. Histological diagnosis of palatal lesions was giant fibroblast fibroma. Nevertheless, no histological evidence was found to show possible relationship between presence of palatal polyps and supernumerary teeth.

Keywords : Palatal polyps; supernumerary teeth; giant fibroblast fibroma.
