Özet

Hereditary gingival fibromatosis and sensorineural hearing loss in a 42-year-old man with Jones syndrome: Gingival fibromatosis is a rare disease, which can be seen as an isolated condition or associated with some uncommon syndromes. This case report describes the evaluation and treatment of a 42-year-old male patient with hereditary gingival fibromatosis, sensorineural hearing loss, undescended testis and maxillary odontogenic cyst (Jones Syndrome). Six years follow up of the index patient after the surgery revealed no recurrence of the gingival fibromatosis. This report also describes the anamnestic data of the patient's family that showed progressive deafness and gingival enlargement in three generations.
