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.

Orthopantomograph reveals a well-localized unilocular radiolucency in the mandibular first molar area on the right side involving the second premolar and second molar roots. Resorption of alveolar bone and loss of lamina dura around the first molar roots is also present.

Mentions: Radiographic examination revealed a well-localized unilocular radiolucency in the mandibular first molar area on the right side involving the second premolar and second molar roots. The alveolar bone around the first molar roots was resorbed more than two-thirds of the root length, and there was loss of lamina dura around the associated vital teeth (Figure 2). Chest radiographs and blood chemistry were normal. Aspiration with a wide bore needle was attempted but yielded no results as it could not penetrate the radiolucent lesion.
