Abstract

Central giant cell granuloma [CGCG] is a relatively uncommon pathological condition accounting for less than 7% of all benign lesions of the jaws. CGCG is a locally aggressive reactive bone lesion with variable clinical behaviour that manifests with pain, cortical perforation, and root resorption. A Case of a 32-year-old male is reported occurring in mandible. The present case is discussed as a diagnostic challenge to distinguish Central giant cell granuloma [CGCG] from Giant cell tumour [GCT], as they show similar biologic behaviour, histopathologic features & prognosis.
