a14 year girl presented with such lesions in mouth since one week no history of fever,no pain no difficulty in swallowing, what's diagnosis and treatment



Tonsillolith Ask the patient to maintain oral hygiene If this happens frequently go for tonsillectomy. Tonsillar stones (tonsilloliths) are white or yellow concretions in tonsillar crypts that originate as a result of microorganism and cellular debris retention in the crypts of palatine tonsils.Tonsillolithiasis, the formation of tonsil stones, is thought to occur mainly due to repeated inflammation of the tonsillar crypts with recurrent tonsillitis and calcification.

I agree
