Neumann's tumor is a rare benign soft tissue lesion presents during birth. It arises from the gingival mucosa, at the anterior part of the maxillary alveolar ridge and is typically seen as protruding mass out of the newborn child's mouth that may interfere with respiration or feeding or lip closure. Female predilection is more compared to male population with ratio of 8:1. Excision of the lesion is the only possible treatment, but its spontaneous regression has been reported. Post-operative recurrence rate of this tumor is less and no damage to any dentition has not been reported, this suggests that radical excision is not required. This case report presents the case of a female infant with a solid ovoid mass protruding from the oral cavity. Treatment of this lesion was surgically done and subjecting to histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of congenital epulis. No post-surgical complications were noted, and examination of the infant later has revealed no sign of recurrence.
