i am a doctor myself posted in the villages. i met a 1.5 year old child. he had suffered from mumps a month back. now he had developed a swelling in his left mandible (in the horizontal porion). it is non pulsatile , hard, painless, non movable, non cystic, boundaries are well defined.
there is no fever, or any constitutional symptoms. its not a lymph node swelling either. there is nothing which can be seen from inside in the buccal cavity..it needed a x-ray and i sent the patient to do the same..
what are the provosional diagnois for this kid?
thanks in advance!
