Central Granular Cell Odontogenic Tumor: Report of a Case with CBCT Features.

Anbiaee N, Saghafi S, Mohammadzadeh Rezaei M - J Dent (Tehran) (2014)

Bottom Line: Here, we report a case of an asymptomatic CGCOT in a 16-year-old girl and focus on the cone-beam CT features.Only 36 cases of this lesion, including this one, have been reported so far.The case presented is of special importance due to the young age of the patient, the posterior location of the lesion and the multilocular pattern in the cone beam CT images.

ABSTRACT
Central granular cell odontogenic tumor) CGCOT) of the jaw is an exceedingly rare benign odontogenic neoplasm with 35 reported cases in the literature. Among these, very few studies have focused on the cone-beam CT features of CGCOT. Here, we report a case of an asymptomatic CGCOT in a 16-year-old girl and focus on the cone-beam CT features. Only 36 cases of this lesion, including this one, have been reported so far. The case presented is of special importance due to the young age of the patient, the posterior location of the lesion and the multilocular pattern in the cone beam CT images.

f6-jod-11-365: Post-operative cropped panoramic shows the mandibular reconstruction.

Mentions: Histologic examination of the lesion revealed sheets and islands of large eosinophilic cells with abundant granular cytoplasm with small islands of odontogenic epithelium (Figure 5A–C). Foci of dystrophic and cementum-like calcifications were detectable in the lesion (Figure 5D). The fibrous stroma contained fibroblasts, and in the decalcified sections, bone trabecules were evident (Figure 5A and B). Histologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of central granular cell odontogenic tumor (CGCOT). Resection of the lesion was carried out to treat the patient. For mandibular reconstruction, allogen graft from the fibula was applied (Figure 6). Histopathological examination of the excised specimen confirmed the diagnosis of CGCOT.
