Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: This paper highlights the unusual and rare presentation of a cementoblastoma in the maxilla. It also discusses a review on this odontogenic pathology. CASE REPORT: We present a cementoblastoma appearing in an atypical site in a young girl. The presenting clinical features with radiologic features are reviewed. Also discussed is an approach to radiological interpretation. To the best of our knowledge, this is only the seventeenth case to be reported in literature. DISCUSSION: Cementoblastoma is a benign true neoplasm which forms a mass of cementum or cementum-like tissue on the root surface of the tooth. As a maxillofacial practitioner, it is essential to consider cementoblastoma as one of the differential diagnosis, although rare, while considering maxillary swellings. The treatment remains fairly conservative, with an excellent prognosis.
