The teenager had been suffering for 18 months
and travelled to the city from his village after local
doctors failed to identify the cause of the problem.

Doctors have described his condition as “very
rare” and “a world record”.
“Ashik’s malaise was diagnosed as a complex
composite odontoma where a single gum forms
lots of teeth. It’s a sort of benign tumour,” Dr
Dhiware said.


“At first, we couldn’t cut it out so we had to use the
basic chisel and hammer to take it out.
“Once we opened it, little pearl-like teeth started
coming out, one-by-one. Initially, we were
collecting them, they were really like small white
pearls.

But then we started to get tired. We counted
232 teeth,” she added.
The surgery, conducted on Monday, involved two
surgeons and two assistants. Ashik now has 28
teeth.


Describing Ashik’s case as “very rare”, Dr
Dhiware said she had “not seen anything like this
before in my 30-year career”, but said she was
“thrilled to get such an exciting case”.
“According to medical literature available on the
condition, it is known to affect the upper jaw and a
maximum of 37 teeth have been extracted from the
tumour in the past. But in Ashik’s case, the tumour
was found deep in the lower jaw and it had
hundreds of teeth.”
Ashik’s father Suresh Gavai was quoted by the
Mumbai Mirror as saying that his son complained
of severe pain a month ago.
“I was worried that it may turn out to be cancer so
I brought him to Mumbai,” he said.
