ABSTRACT

Tonsillolith also known as tonsil stones or tonsillar calculi are clusters of calcified material that form in the crypts of palatine tonsils. They are usually single and unilateral, but occasionally may be multiple or bilateral. Tonsilloliths are rare calcified concretions that develop in tonsillar crypts within the substance of the tonsil or around it. Large tonsilloliths can mimic many conditions including abscesses or neoplasms. Given the wide range of differentials, it is difficult to diagnose tonsilloliths unless there is a considered emphasis on thorough history taking, careful inspection and a detailed characterisation of the lesion through digital palpation. This may be further supplemented with investigations such as plain radiography and computer tomography. Here we report a case of tonsillolith in 27 year old female patient.

Keywords: tonsillolith, tonsil, calculus, oral cavity.
