A 7-year-old boy had long complained of having a swollen and aching jaw. Surgeons at the Saveetha Dental College and Hospital in Chennai, India, operated and found 526 teeth crammed inside his mouth.
The boy had a "well-defined bag-like mass" extracted from his jaw, which weighed 7 ounces and contained hundreds of miniature teeth. Once it was removed, the medical team took five hours to meticulously search through and count all of them.
"It was reminiscent of pearls in an oyster," one doctor said.
