Radiolucent lesion of the mandible with an indolent course over 10 years

Published:February 23, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.oooo.2022.02.006
      A 27-year-old man presented in 2009 with a longstanding history of a multiloculated radiolucent lesion in the left mandible. It was assessed, and a biopsy was performed in another country. At the time of the assessment, the patient was asymptomatic. The biopsy was interpreted and reported as a benign fibrous lesion with a differential diagnosis of benign neural tumor such as neurofibroma.
