MARIN BOTERO, M.L.; GARCIA RESTREPO, F; MARIN CARDONA, M.N.  e  CASTANEDA PELAEZ, D.A.. Presentation of an aneurysmal bone cyst mandibular of great size: a case report and review of the literature. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.5, pp.239-249. ISSN 2340-3152.

A cyst is a pathologic cavity that can contain a liquid substance, semi-liquid or gaseous. Appear as a result of an inflammatory reaction (inflammatory cysts) or for reasons not known (cysts of development). Commonly the cavity is covered by a capsule formed by connective tissue and underlying a epithelium in the lumen, except in the pseudocysts that lack of epithelial tissue, as is the case where we present a patient with aneurysmal bone cyst (QOA). This injury occurs with a frequency of 1.2 % of the cysts maxillary and 2% of those who appear throughout the body. The objective of this paper is to present a clinical case of a patient of 21 years of black male that consulted to the maxillofacial surgery service of the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Antioquia, by presenting a volume increase in right mandibular body. The radiographic examination is a radiolucent image of great size. The patient will be practiced two previous biopsies that gave a diagnosis other than (odontogenic tumor queratocyst and radicular cyst inflammatory) but the definitive diagnosis of the surgical specimen was aneurysmal bone cyst (QOA). It describes its handling and is performed a review of the literature.
