Description: Dentists are responsible for the diagnosis of abnormalities involving both
hard and soft tissues in and around the oral cavity. In addition to a clinical
examination, the radiographic evaluation will often highlight abnormalities
within the radiographic field. A relatively uncommon radiographic abnormality
is calcification of lymph nodes, which may be associated with a number of
pathologic processes, both local and systemic. We present and discuss lymph node
calcifications and the diagnostic considerations associated with them in order to
assist practitioners in managing their patients appropriately.
