Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

Giant Cell Granuloma is a rare non-odontogenic lesion. Its name derives from thepresence into the tumor of giant cells, similar to osteoclasts. On the basis of the biological behaviour, there are 2 variants of this tumor differentiated between aggressive and nonaggressive lesions. Treatment options reported in the literature include marginal or segmental osteotomy. If the lesion is classified as non-aggressive the marginal osteotomy (curettage) is the adequate treatment; in contrast, in presence of aggressive lesions, segmental osteotomy (en bloc resection) appears to yield the best overall outcome. The aim of the present report was to describe a case of primary Giant Cell Granuloma of the mandible in a child and discuss the surgical treatment.
