CHONDROBLASTOMA

CHONDROBLASTOMA DEFINATION

Chondroblastoma are rarer benign neoplasms arising from the epiphyseal ends of the long bones. Rarely these lesions can occur in the oral cavity.

 

CHONDROBLASTOMA CLINICAL FEATURES:

Age: Most of the patients are below the age of 25years.

Sex: Male people are affected more often than females.

Site: Intraoral chondroblastomas are usually rare and whenever they occur, mandibular condyle is the most favored site.

 

CHONDROBLASTOMA  CLINICAL PRESENTATION:

  • Chondroblastomas clinically present a relatively large, bony hard lesion, causing bulging of the jawbones.
  • Displacement of the regional teeth often occurs.
  • Pain may be present especially during palpation.

 

CHONDROBLASTOMA RADIOGRAPHIC FEATURES:

Radiographically Chondroblastomas usually present-a large radiolucent area in the bone, with well-defined margins.

There can be presence of few radiopaque foci within the radiolucent zone.

 

CHONDROBLASTOMA HISTOPATHOLOGY:

  • Histologically chondroblastomas present a highly cellular structure consisting of numerous round or polyhedral ‘chondroblast-like’ cells within a thin fibrous tissue stroma.
  • Within the fibrous stroma, few areas of calcification are seen, besides this, there can be presence of multiple multinucleated giant’s cells.

 

CHONDROBLASTOMA TREATMENT:

Surgical excision.
