The most significant exostoses of the human jaws are the torus palatinus and torus mandibularis. Torus palatinus has long been reported by various anthropological and anatomical studies. Even if it has no functional importance, it could interfere with oral functions. Although it has been the subject of numerous studies, torus palatinus is rarely reported in children. The purpose of this paper was to report a rare case of torus palatinus in a 1½-year-old boy.
