Abstract

Term Giant Cell Reparative Granuloma (GCRG) a non-neoplastic lesion characterized by a proliferation of granulation tissue containing numerous multinucleated giant cells was introduced by Jaffe in 1953 to describe an apparently reactive intraosseous lesion of the mandible and maxilla following trauma induced intraosseous hemorrhage. It is a disease of the young presenting as a painless swelling in the anterior jaw. It appears on radiology as a unilocular or multilocular radiolucency with a characteristic tendency of resorbing the root tips of adjacent unerupted teeth. A central giant cell granuloma of the maxilla is presented, which was diagnosed in a seventeen-year-old male and surgically treated.
