Torus palatinus

By Pumersha Naidoo, Narisha Maharaj, Jaynund Maharajh and Ashraf Moosa

Abstract

Kupffer and Bessel-Hagen coined the term torus palatinus in 1879 for a benign osseous protuberance arising from the midline of the hard palate. Tori are present in approximately 20% of the population and are occult until adulthood. Recent advances in modern radiology have led to improved evaluation and diagnosis of tori
