History of the present illness
This is a 28-year-old white male who presented with a bony bump above teeth #s 10 and 11. This lesion was first noticed by his general dentist in September 2004 and later by the oral surgeon on 10/30/2005. It was expansile, especially labially. The bone supporting the two teeth was compromised, but the teeth were not mobile. The area was biopsied on 11/02/2005. The area was described as a solid mass with a gelatinous consistency. It was 2 x 1.5 cm in size. The lesion did not perforate into the maxillary sinus or the nasal cavity. The roots of teeth #s 10 and 11 were devoid of bone on the interproximal surfaces and a significant amount of the labial cortex was missing. The patient is on follow-up in 3-month intervals.
