Abstract

<p align=\"justify\">Pathological calcification refers to the deposition of calcium salts in tissues affected by disease. Phlebolith formation or calcification of thrombus is one example of pathological calcification. It is however rarely encountered. Two such cases, one affecting the buccal mucosa of a 6-year-old Malay, and another in a 29-year-old Chinese, both females, are described. A collective review of 11 previously reported and the current 2 cases yielded 9 female and 4 male patients whose ages ranged from 6 to 57 years (mean age, 27.9 years) and, who presented with a mean onset duration of 12 years. A brief discussion on the differential diagnosis of pathological calcifications of the cheek mucosa is also included.</p>
