Surgical management of central giant cell granuloma of mandible and prosthetic rehabilitation in a nine year girl: A case report
Central giant cell granuloma is an idiopathic, osteolytic lesion of jaws.
A rare case of large destructive CGCG involving anterior region of mandible in a nine-year girl is presented in this case report.
The case was treated successfully by enucleation and curettage with satisfactory preservation of the continuity of mandible.
Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is an uncommon, benign, idiopathic, osteolytic lesion of jaws, histologically characterized by multinucleated giant cells distributed in fibrovascular connective tissue stroma. Accurate diagnosis of the lesion is essential for the successful management and the prognosis of this locally destructive lesion. In this paper, a rare case of large destructive CGCG involving anterior region of mandible, causing expansion of labial cortical plate and mobility of teeth in a nine-year girl is presented. It was treated successfully by enucleation and curettage with satisfactory preservation of the continuity of mandible. Nine months post operatively, the child was rehabilitated with a temporary partial denture to improve esthetics, phonetics and function. One year clinical and radiographic follow up showed new bone formation and no evidence of recurrence.
