Author(s): Pooja Siwach, Supriya Girish Bhalchim, Arush Thakur
Abstract: In radiographs, the multilocular pattern comprises about one third of cases, and may simulate a number of cysts and tumors in the jaws. Traumatic bone cyst (TBC) which comprise 1% of jaw cysts is usually unilocular but may show multilocularity on radiographs. Because of lack of unique clinical and radiographic features, it is important to establish the differential diagnosis between traumatic bone cysts and other bone lesions of the jaws. A case of multilocular radiolucent lesion involving anterior mandible in a 38 year old male has been discussed with possible differential diagnosis.
