What is choristoma?

A choristoma is a developmental tumor-like growth of microscopically normal tissue in an abnormal location. The most common type of oral choristoma is composed of bone, cartilage, or both. Such lesions usually occur as nodular masses in the midline region, especially on the posterior dorsal tongue near the foramen cecum (almost 85% of cases).
