Abstract

 

Reactive hyperplastic lesions in oral cavity are benign tumors that cause local symptoms and complications. Underlying pathologic mechanism is still uncertain but local irritant factors might be the  reason. Giant cell granuloma is one of the most common forms of the reactive hyperplastic lesions. They can be located on jaw and maxillary bone at the level of premolar and incisive teeth. Most of the lesions are <1.5 cm in diameter. Tumors which are detected on maxillary bone and >1.5 cm in diameter are rare. Main treatment modality is to completely excise the lesion to decrease the chance of recurrence. In this report we present a maxillary bone tumor (3 × 3 cm in size) that is treated successfully by surgery after recurrence.
