Case of the Week: Tonsiliths 2


This week is another CBCT case of calcifications, this time in the tonsils.  On CBCT images, these are seen on the axial views lateral to the airway and on coronal views medial to the ramus of the mandible.  They are well-defined irregular shaped radiopaque entities. They may be single or multiple or unilateral or bilateral.

CBCT axial view - multiple radiopaque entities to the right and left of the airway
