Oroparyngeal tumors in neonates protruding from the mouth are extremely rare. They have the potential to cause respiratory distress, or even death of the child during the perinatal period owing to airway obstruction and may need a multidisciplinary team approach at the time of birth. Congenital epulis and epignathus are the 2 rare lesions usually presenting like this and clinical manifestations depend on their position and size. They have an excellent prognosis, if treated properly. This paper will discuss our experience with these 2 lesions and review the literature.
