Dadhich AS, Nilesh K - Ann Maxillofac Surg (2015 Jan-Jun)

Bottom Line: It usually occurs in the posterior mandible and is associated with roots of a mandibular first molar or second premolar.This paper presents a rare case of cementoblastoma in the maxillary posterior region involving the maxillary sinus, in a young female patient.The clinical, radiological, and histopathological features of the lesion are discussed along with a review of previously reported cases in the literature.

ABSTRACT
Cementoblastoma is a rare neoplasm, representing <1% of all odontogenic tumors. It usually occurs in the posterior mandible and is associated with roots of a mandibular first molar or second premolar. This paper presents a rare case of cementoblastoma in the maxillary posterior region involving the maxillary sinus, in a young female patient. The clinical, radiological, and histopathological features of the lesion are discussed along with a review of previously reported cases in the literature.

Mentions: Histological examination of the decalcified surgical specimen revealed sheets of cementum like tissue with entrapped vascular connective tissue stroma [Figure 4a]. The intervening connective tissue stroma was loose, fibrillar, and highly vascular. Prominent reversal lines were seen within the sheets of cementum-like tissue [Figure 4b]. All these microscopic features confirmed the diagnosis of benign cementoblastoma. The patient has been under regular surveillance for 2 years and has not exhibited any sign of recurrence [Figure 5].
