Abstract

Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG) is a benign, intraosseous osteolytic lesion which often affects the mandible and its’ pathophysiology is not fully understood. Histopathology is still the dominant diagnostic method for this disorder. Clinically invasive lesions can lead to premature injury and may require invasive treatment to prevent recurrence .more than 60% of all cases occur before the age of 30. In spite of the fact that the sex ratio varies in different studies, giant cell granuloma is most commonly reported in women; and approximately 70% occur in the mandible. Radiographically, giant cell granuloma is defined as radiolucent defects that may be uni-locular or multi-locular, which have an indefinite margin Most lesions are found in the anterior part of the jaw, and mandibular lesions often cross the midline In this study, a case of invasive CGCG of maxillary bone in a 9-year-old boy with diagnostic and therapeutic challenges was presented.

Graphical Abstract

Central giant cell granuloma of maxillary bone in pediatric patient: A case report

Highlights

  • Central giant cell granuloma of maxilla in male pediatric patient is rare.
  • To reduce the size of the lesion in the maxilla for the surgery sclerotic agent had been used.
  • Giant cell lesion is in the differential diagnosis of central giant cell granuloma.
