Title: Central giant cell granuloma of anterior maxilla
Biography: Fariha Kauser
This paper holistically represents the uncommon location of central giant cell granuloma due to its occurrence in maxilla. Central giant cell granulomas are benign, non-proliferative lesion and commonly seen in mandible. The etiology is still unknown and not a true neoplasm but may be linked to its reactive, non-developmental and aggressive nature. This case report presents a 21 years old Asian male with moderate painful swelling in the left side of anterior maxilla. The lesion was more painful on palpation and adjacent tooth was having grade 3 and 2 mobility. Tumor was located on anterior maxilla, close to the midline, separating the upper left lateral incisor from upper left canine. Medical, family and social history is non-significant.
