A neonate with oral mass ?

Recommended Posts

Hello my colleagues .

 

My case for today is a term male baby born to multiparous  mother .

healthy , well .

on examination he has this mass which is somehow semisolid , movable , pedunculated   .

it doesn't interfere with feeding or breathing .

His investigation was normal .

 

So i referred him to a pediatric surgery and iam waiting for updated .

i took two pic ( permition of course had been taken )  .

 

So , What is next ?
