Type B idiopathic bone defect of mandible: an etiopathogenic dilemma.

Jhamb AV, Jhamb PA, Dave A, Shetty VP - Case Rep Dent (2012)

Bottom Line: Radiographic interpretation is at times inadequate in diagnosis of odontogenic & nonodontogenic radiolucent lesions involving jaw bones.Histopathology has different criteria to segregate this lesion.In this paper, we discuss a case of type B histopathological variant of idiopathic bone defect that may suggest an alternative pathogenesis from type A variant.

ABSTRACT
Etiopathogenesis of the pathologic lesions forms the basis for formulation of appropriate intervention and further prevention. There is still a vast unknown field that has to be explored to know the causative reason behind certain benign & malignant lesions. Idiopathic bone defects are nonodontogenic pseudocystic cavities that are seen in the long bones & jaw bones. Radiographic interpretation is at times inadequate in diagnosis of odontogenic & nonodontogenic radiolucent lesions involving jaw bones. Histopathology has different criteria to segregate this lesion. In this paper, we discuss a case of type B histopathological variant of idiopathic bone defect that may suggest an alternative pathogenesis from type A variant.

fig1: Intraoral view shows slight expansion of the buccal cortex in the region of mandibular first molar on right side.

Mentions: A 35-years-old female visited our clinic in August 2009 with a complaint of swelling on right side of face, which had slowly increased in size over last one year before the patient approached for treatment. There was no history of trauma or any previous infection in the affected area. The past medical and surgical history was noncontributory. On physical examination the facial symmetry was maintained. Intraorally, slight expansion of the buccal cortex was seen in mandibular first molar region on right side (Figure 1). On palpation, the swelling was nontender, bony hard and localized over the alveolus of the mandibular first molar region on the buccal side. The teeth in the involved area were normal. There was no paresthesia or cervical lymphadenopathy.
