Mandibular hyperostosis. A case report



Mandibular hyperostosis. A case report



Minerva Stomatologica 51(9): 399-403



A case of hyperostosis of the left hemimandible medial face in a young patient is reported. This in an interesting case both for the remarkable size and the location of the lesion and because it was unique and asymmetrical; as a matter of fact this pathology, frequent on the jaws, is usually symmetrical and bilateral. The most probable etiopathogenetic hypothesis for the case presented to our observation seems to be an unknown localized stimulation of osteoblastic cells. Considering its size, the lesion was removed.
