Abstract

The synopsis of radiographic examination (uni- or multilocular radiolucency), histologic findings (giant cells throughout a benign fibroblastic matrix), blood chemistry analysis (normal serum parathyroid hormone) and clinical features provides the definitive diagnosis of giant cell granuloma, allowing the clearly defined surgical management of this lesion. The case history of a 48-year-old female patient who presented with a giant cell granuloma in the right mandible is used to illustrate this controversially discussed intra-osseous lesion. The potential therapeutic change from radical operative treatment, including functional maintenance, to conservative procedures is emphasized.
