An aggressive central giant cell granuloma treated successfully by conventional surgery

AUTHOR(S): Mariam Mezzour, Karima Elharti and Wafaa Elwady
ABSTRACT:Central giant cell granuloma is a rather rare lesion of the jaws aetiology of which is still completely unknown but thought to be of a reactive process to some unknown stimuli. It is an uncommon benign proliferative lesion that may become aggressive leading to the expansion and perforation of cortex, resulting into mobility and displacement of teeth and root resorption, with very high recurrence rate, requiring then a radical surgery. We report the clinical course of aggressive central giant cell granuloma treated successfully by conventional surgery, with fortunately no sign of recurrence during the control period. Authors suggest that the aggressive form of the CGCG should be treated initially by conventional therapy. Regular course of control will allow spotting recurrence signs if any. Radical surgery should be set aside for recurrence cases.
