Author: SA, Adam; Eltohami, Yousif; Abuaffan, Amal H.; EE, Mariam; EN, Alim
Abstract: Cherubism is a congenital childhood disease of autosomal dominant inheritance, characterized by painless bilateral enlargement of the jaws, in which bone is replaced with fibrous tissue, and is well-known to regress without treatment following puberty. Boys are more affected than girls at the proportion of 2:1 [1,2]. Jones [3] in described Cherubism as a familial disease, multilocular cystic disease of the jaws. Typical age of onset is 2 to 5 years, with the jaw lesions progressing gradually until puberty when the swelling spontaneously stabilizes and then it regresses [3]. Cherubism lesions impact on the eruption and arrangement of the primary dentition [4] however the effect on the permanent dentition include absence of the molars , teeth with abnormal shape and root resorption [5]. This is a case report that highlights the initial bilateral presentation of Cherubism case and reviews the different aspect of clinical, radiographic and histopathological feature.
