口蓋裂乳児の舌背中央部に発生した化膿性肉芽腫の1例 A case of pyogenic granuloma arising in the dorsum of the tongue in an infant with cleft palate
We present a case of pyogenic granuloma arising in the dorsum of the tongue in a 1-month-old boy with cleft palate. Pyogenic granuloma was apparently caused by chronic mechanical irritation to the tongue caused by sucking an artificial nipple.<BR>The observation of his tongue movements while nursing were examined with an X-ray TV system to determe how the irritation developed.
