Kanika Singh Dhull, Praveen Kumar PS, Rachita Singh Dhull, Swagatika Panda, Shweta Yadav, Indira MD


Riga-Fede disease is a chronic traumatic ulceration presenting on the ventral surface of the tongue in neonates and infants, frequently associated with natal, neonatal, or primary lower incisor teeth. Treatment option is either conservative or extraction of natal and neonatal tooth. In the present three cases extraction was done because of difficulty in breast feeding and fear of aspiration due to the mobility of the teeth. At the follow up of all cases the lesion had resolved and the infant was feeding normally.
