The giant cell granuloma is an identical reactive lesion which is mostly progressive in nature. The clinical behavior of these lesions varies from indolent to aggressive variant. The central form of giant cell granuloma involves the craniofacial bone, followed by long bones of hands and feet. These lesions are usually asymptomatic lesions and are discovered incidentally during routine radiographic examination. Radiograph features reveal multilocular jaw lesions, generally anterior to the first molar regions. Histologically, the lesion shows proliferating spindle-shaped stromal cells in a fibrovascular connective tissue stroma, which characteristically contains multiple multinucleated giant cells. Hemorrhage and hemosiderin pigmentations are often seen in tumor. Central giant cell granuloma is often confused with giant cell tumor of bone histologically. Here, we report a young male who was found to have large central giant cell granuloma in the anterior part of the mandible. The surgical treatment approach of central giant cell granuloma is discussed in this article.
