FERNANDEZ SANROMAN, Jacinto; ANTON BADIOLA, Iosu María  and  COSTAS LOPEZ, Alberto. Brown tumor of the mandible as first manifestation of primary hyperparathyroidism: diagnosis and treatment. Med. oral patol. oral cir. bucal (Ed.impr.) [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.2, pp.169-172. ISSN 1698-4447.

Brown tumor is one of the lesions that develop in patients with hyperparathyroidism. Any of the squeletal bones can be affected including the cranio-maxillofacial ones. Most of the times the brown tumor appears after a final diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism is made. However brown tumor can be the first clinical sign of the disease. A clinical case in which a brown tumor located in the anterior part of the mandible appears as the first sign of primary hyperparathyroidism is presented. The possible differential clinical diagnosis and the recommended treatments are revised.

Keywords : Brown tumor; hyperparathyroidism; parathyroid adenoma; maxillofacial tumors.
