Pediatric soft tissue lesions.Dent Clin North Am. 2005 Jan; 49(1):241-58, x.DC
Soft tissue oral and perioral lesions in the pediatric population are numerous and occur in various clinical presentations. Some conditions observed in children share characteristics with adult-onset disease. Other oral lesions are limited to the pediatric population. This article focuses on the more common soft tissue manifestations in children. Rather than a comprehensive review of pediatric oral pathology, the article offers an overview of selected clinical conditions often encountered in young patients.
