Central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) is a benign intraosseous lesion of the jaws that is found predominantly in children and young adults. CGCG is an asymptomatic lesion which shows a clinical behavior ranging from nonaggressive to aggressive variant and becomes evident during a routine radiographic examination or by the visible expansion of the affected jaw. The common therapy is aggressive curettage, peripheral osteotomy or resection, which may be associated with loss of teeth and in younger patient's loss of dental germs. This paper presents a case of CGCG involving the mandibular anterior region in a male child patient with clinical, radiological, histopathological, and surgical aspect of the lesion.
