Cherubism is a rare autosomal dominant fibro-osseous disorder of childhood, mostly limited to the maxilla and mandible. Extra-cranial skeletal involvement is rare. Post-pubertal involution of the process and jaw remodeling occurs in adulthood. The aim of this case report is to present four cherubs, a father and his three daughters, in whom the diagnosis was made based on history, physical examination, laboratory tests and typical radiological features. The imaging characteristics are discussed and the published literature is reviewed.
