Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia. Report of a case in a white woman with both mandibular and maxillary involvement
Pippi R., Marini M., Perfetti G.
Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FLCOD) is a rare pathological entity whose classification is not yet completely defined although its non-neoplastic clinical and histologic behaviour is very clear. FLCOD is a self-limiting lesion scarcely delimited from the surrounding healthy tissue and whose surgical treatment therefore is not elective, unless inflammatory signs are present. A case of a white woman with both mandibular and maxillary involvement is presented; she was referred to us for partial impaction of her lower 3rd molars. Standard radiographic and CT images are examined and the patient management is discussed.
