It’s a rare cause of newborn’s intraoral masses. they are usually on the maxilla and soliter , they can rarely  be seen on the mandibula and multiple. Even if it is not clinically symptomatic, surgical resection is performed because of its cosmetic appearance, negative psychological effect on the family , differential diagnosis and treatment.
