Osteoma cutis: a case report.
AbstractThe purpose of this comunication is to share the experience with a case of osteoma cutis in a 46 years old woman who requested odontological treatment at the dental clinic of the Universidad del Valle. The periapical radiographic image of the superior molar zone showed multiple radiopaque bilateral rounded bodies of approximately 2 mm in diameter. The case was further studied and analyzed at the radiological section of the school. It was characterized as a non-frequent radiological finding. This unusual finding motivated a detailed review and the use of other diagnostic tools, such as clinical and histopathological tests that established the final diagnosis.
