Cherubism: case report with review of literature.


Cherubism is a rare hereditary fibro-osseous lesion characterized by painless expansion of jaws in childhood and is known to regress without treatment after puberty. Wait and watch approach has been advocated by many authors. The disease starts early in life manifesting itself fully in the second decade of life and is almost regressed in the third decade. Here, we report two cases of cherubism with clinico-radiographic presentation of its classical features in their third and fourth decade of life respectively and review the literature.
