Abstract

Cherubism is a rare hereditary disease of non-neoplastic origin seen in childhood and characterized by bilateral bony enlargement of the jaws.[1] It causes diffuse, bilateral, and multilocular expansion of the mandible and/or maxilla and has a characteristic radiographic and histopathological appearance [1,2] In this case report, we describe the CT features of this uncommon condition in a 14-year-old girl.
