Bohn's nodule is a soft white cyst filled with keratin and is often found in a newborn's oral cavity. This case has a high prevalence in newborns and is rarely seen in infants after three months. In this case, we report our observation and evaluation of a Bohn's nodule case in a seven-month-old male infant. Clinical diagnosis of the conditions is vital to avoid unnecessary therapeutic procedures and provide timely information for parents to manage the lesion.
