Diverticulum of the oral mucosa is reported as rare. We report three cases of diverticulum of the buccal mucosa. The three patients were middle-aged or older males, and they had no history of pain or discomfort. Clinical examination revealed diverticulum measuring 3-12mm in diameter, 5-8mm in depth posterior-interior to the papillae of Stensen's duct. Excision was carried out to deep one and no treatment were performed to sharrow cases.
