Central cavernous hemangioma of mandible: Case report and review of literature



Central cavernous hemangioma of mandible: Case report and review of literature



National Journal of Maxillofacial Surgery 6(2): 209-213



Intraosseous hemangiomas are one of the rarest lesion of jaw bones (0.5-1%) occurring most commonly in vertebral column, skull bone, and rarely in mandible. Mainly occurs in the second decade of life with female: male predilection (2:1). Origin of hemangiomas is still debatable. World Health Organization considers it as a true benign neoplasm of vascular origin, and many authors believe it to be a hamartoma. It is very difficult to diagnose due to variable clinical and radiological features. A biopsy is not done on a routine basis due to a higher risk of hemorrhage. Management is very difficult because of massive vascular network in that region. Here, we are presenting a case report of a 14-year-old boy with intraosseous hemangioma of right body of mandible, which was treated with en bloc surgical resection of mandible and followed by reconstruction.
