Peripheral odontogenic neoplasms have similarities with other peripheral tumoral and nontumoral lesions. It is difficult to obtain proper diagnosis clinically and it is mostly based on the histopathologic features. Moreover, differential diagnosis of oral lesions differs between children and adults, and as a result, reports of such cases help better diagnose the lesions in this age group. Peripheral odontoma (PO), unlike central types, is uncommon. However, they have the same features as their intraosseous counterparts histopathologically. Here, we report the case of PO in a pediatric patient which was present from his infancy.
