Cemento-osseous dysplasia (COD) is a non-neoplastic process usually confined to the toothbearing areas of the jaws or edentulous alveolar processes. It is mostly seen in women during the third and fourth decades of life. The mandible is the most common location in 70% of cases in the premolar-molar region. This case report presents a case of cemento-ossifying fibroma with clinical features and radiographic features in a 23-year-old female patient.
Ewing's sarcoma is one of the most aggressive primary bone tumours. Ewing's sarcoma arising from the bones of the head and neck region is extremely rare; only 4–9% of all Ewing's sarcoma originate in this region. We report a case of Ewing's sarcoma localized in the mandible because of its unusual presentation.
This study of complications of mandibular fractures according to the method of treatment used for the management shows that the older methods of treatment can still be relied upon in modern day practice.
Objective: The plethora of techniques available for the treatment of mandibular fractures suggests that there is controversy regarding their definitive outcome.The purpose of this study was to clinically study the complications associated with the different treatment methods of mandibular fractures at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), Nigeria.
