Videoendoscopic assisted curettage of central giant cell granuloma of the maxilla in pediatric age

Minerva Stomatol. 2011 Jun;60(6):321-5.

Abstract

Giant cell granuloma is an uncommon bony benign lesion that generally involves the mandible and maxilla. It may be locally aggressive and result in extensive tissue destruction in advanced cases. Surgery is the traditional and still the most accepted treatment for giant cell granuloma. We report a pediatric case of central giant cell granuloma of the maxilla treated with videoendoscopic assisted surgical excision.
