A 12-year-old boy presented with a 1-year history of a mass in his right cheek that had been noted at a routine dental appointment. The mass was not associated with pain, erythema, edema, or trismus, and the patient's mother denied bruxism or local trauma. The boy's medical history was notable for pervasive developmental disorder, for which amphetamine-dextroamphetamine and atamoxitene had previously been prescribed, and for surgical repair of a left inguinal hernia and hydrocele 6 years earlier. At the time of presentation, he was taking no medications, had no known drug allergies, and complained only of seasonal allergic rhinitis.
