Cherubism is a rare, hereditary, nonneoplastic bone disease. It is characterized by clinically evident bilateral, painless enlargements of the jaws that are said to give the patient a "chubby" appearance. This article presents a case of cherubism in a 5-year-old girl with painless bilateral swelling. Panoramic radiographs and a computed tomography scan showed bilateral multilocular radiolucent areas with cortical expansion. Histopathologic examination revealed proliferating fibrous connective tissue containing numerous multinucleated giant cells.
