      A case of traumatic bone cyst of the body of the mandible in a 24-year-old woman is presented. This lesion had been treated surgically on three prior occasions and had not resolved. The two mandibular premolars and the first molar were found to be involved in the cystlike cavity and were endodontically treated during the second and third surgical procedures. The treatment reported here consisted of the removal of four nonvital teeth involved in the lesion, placement of a homograft of freeze-dried cancellous bone chips, and primary closure of the surgical site. Clinical and roentgenographic examinations 6 months following this procedure showed satisfactory healing of the traumatic bone cyst.
