Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A girl with a family history of Gardner's syndrome presented with an actively growing central lesion of the mandible and localized subcutaneous fibrous hyperplasia which required surgical intervention and bone grafting. The importance of this syndrome is the development of intestinal polyposis which become malignant. The presence of dentofacial stigmata and surface tumors should alert the dentist and physician to the possibility of Gardner's syndrome.
