Pathophysiology:

  • According to some investigators central giant’s cell granuloma develops as a reparative process in response to the Reponses to the intrabony hemorrhage or inflammation.
  • According to other investigators the lesion occur a developmental anomaly.

Age: Young Adults

Sex: Female predilection

Site:

  • Mandible more often than maxilla.
  • Tooth bearing areas of the jaw.
  • A small, slow enlarging, bony hard swelling of the jaw develops which is often painful on palpation.
