Fetal oral masses rarely occur in utero. Their detection is of paramount importance because the mass may close the oral cavity, leading to polyhydramnios and eventually resulting in preterm labor and/or fetal loss due to postpartum asphyxia. We present two cases of fetal oral masses diagnosed with fetal congenital epulis and fetal thyroglossal duct cyst each, in which the masses were excised by ex utero intrapartum treatment during cesarean deliveries.

Keywords: Prenatal diagnosis, gingival neoplasms, oral masses.
