Abstract
This study is concerned with the incidence, clinical observations, and gross anatomic and histologic findings of an anomaly of which American dentists are relatively unaware, namely an occlusal tubercle that often appears on Mongoloid premolars. Because of the Chinese, Japanese, American Indian, and Eskimo patients that we may treat, it is important to have a knowledge of this anomaly and the pathologic conditions with which it can be associated.
