Abstract

Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is a benign intraosseous lesion of the jaws that is found predominantly in children and young adults. Although benign, it may be locally aggressive, causing extensive bone destruction, tooth displacement and root resorption. The common therapy is aggressive curettage, peripheral ostectomy or resection, which may be associated with loss of teeth and in younger patient\'s loss of dental germs. In this article, a 6-year-old girl with CGCG is successfully treated surgically and this treatment is discussed along with review of the literature. How to cite this article: Patloth T, Reddy SJ.
