INFANTE COSSIO, Pedro et al. Recurrent central giant cell granuloma in the mandible: Surgical treatment and dental implant restoration. Med. oral patol. oral cir.bucal (Internet) [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.3, pp.229-232. ISSN 1698-6946.

Central giant cell granuloma is an uncommon benign intraosseus lesion of jaws. Traditional treatment has been local curettage, although aggressive sub-types have a high tendency to recur. This patient report describes a recurrent central giant cell granuloma involving the body of the mandible in a 48-year-old-woman. Initial treatment of lesion consisted of curettage and peripheral ostectomy. When recurrence was detected one year later, an en bloc resection and defect regeneration with a composite bone graft of autogenous bone, xenograft, and autologous platelet-rich plasma was carried out. Adequate new bone formation was observed during follow-up of 24 months. Two dental implants were placed, and implant-supported prosthesis was constructed, providing a satisfactory dental restoration.

Keywords : Mandible; giant cell; granuloma; dental implants; dental prosthesis.
