Abstract

Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG), first described by Jaffe in 1953 is a non neoplastic, reactive lesion of unknown etiology which commonly occurs in the Mandible but can occur in Maxilla also. The radiographic appearance of this lesion is not consistent and may at times lead to incorrect diagnosis. We present a case of Central Giant Cell Granuloma of the Anterior Maxilla and highlight the importance of radiographic investigations in the diagnosis of such lesions.
