LOPEZ-ARCAS CALLEJA, José Mª; CEBRIAN CARRETERO, José Luis; GONZALEZ MARTIN, Javier  e  BURGUENO, Miguel. Aneurysmal bone cyst of the mandible: Case presentation and review of the literature. Med. oral patol. oral cir.bucal (Internet) [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.5, pp.401-403. ISSN 1698-6946.

The aneurysmatic osseus cyst is a very infrequent bone lesion which in some occasions can be found at the craneofacial skeleton. Among all the cystic lesions that can be found at the mandible or the maxilla it is very rare. On the other side it is at the same time very interesting in terms of its differential diagnose with other types of maxillary bone lesions We present the case of a Caucasian male with an aneurysmatic cyst located at the right angle of the mandible and a review of the literature concerning the case. We have focused on the differential diagnose, mainly with the malignancies that can be found at this location. We also comment the therapeutic options clasically described for these kind of pathologies. In our patient, the surgical excision allowed a complete removal of the lesion and a posterior bone healing which made possible a implant-supported rehabilitation of the edentulous segment.

Palavras-chave : Anurysmatic; bone cyst; mandible cyst; ameloblastoma.
