Abstract

Osseous choristoma is a rare, benign proliferative osseous lesion, which is defined as the growth of normal tissue in an abnormal location. The etiopathogenesis for its formation is unknown, but various hypotheses have been proposed. Treatment of choice is en-bloc resection, and no recurrence has been reported. Here, we report the two cases of osseous choristoma, presented with a mass on the base of the tongue with/without globus symptom and were treated with surgical excision.
