Özet

Central giant cell granuloma is a rare and a benign lesion of the jaws. Conventional treatment is surgery but other approaches including calcitonin are being used in unresectable cases. Herein, we report a case of maxillary tumor causing prominent asymmetry and swelling in the face of a young girl who was effectively treated with surgery following unsuccessful calcitonin therapy.
