Abstract

Gigantiform cementoma is a rare, benign fibro-cemento-osseous disease of the jaws, seen most frequently in young girls. Radiographically, it typically presents as multiquadrant, expansile, mixed radiolucent-opaque lesions that cross the midlines of the jaws. Although cases with a familial pattern are noted in a few publications, sporadic cases have been reported without a family history. The term gigantiform cementoma has been used interchangeably with designations of other fibro-osseous entities, yet its application should be restricted by the criteria defined herein. In this article, we report 3 cases of gigantiform cementoma. Clinical, radiographic, and microscopic features of these lesions are presented, along with criteria to differentiate gigantiform cementoma from other fibro-osseous diseases of the jaws. A possible pathogenetic mechanism and treatment recommendations are discussed.
