Abstract

Jawbones have various properties that result from their peculiar embryonic development. Jawbones play a pivotal role in anchoring teeth. Any disturbance in their development leads to the pathology of the jaw and their surrounding structures. Since these pathologies develop from the jaw they have typical clinical radiographic and histologic features. The case report highlights the importance of prompt diagnosis which will lead to proper treatment and counselling of the patient.

This is a case report of 12 years old female patient who came to the Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology with a chief complaint of caries. Later, on examination, the unusual swelling in the maxilla was noted with the patient being completely unaware and asymptomatic. On correlating various clinical radiographic and histologic features a rarest of rare concealed pathology of jaw bone was unshielded.
