AIM To understand the aggressiveness of lesions in immunocompromised patients. Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is a non-neoplastic intraosseous lesion, anterior to the molars and more commonly in the mandible. It is an uncommon lesion accounting for less than 7% of all benign jaw lesions found predominantly in children and young adults with a female predilection of about 2:1 ratio. CASE DESCRIPTION A 22-year-old male patient came to the department with a growth in the anterior part of the… Expand


Radiologic features of central giant cell granuloma of the jaws.
The radiologic features of central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) have not been clearly defined, and conflicting descriptions appear in the literature, but the correlation between the lesion's size and its locularity is statistically significant, and larger lesions assume a multilocular appearance.
