Abstract

The aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a benign, blood-filled bony lesion that commonly affects the vertebral column and long bones of the body. ABCs can appear in the head and neck on rare occasions. ABCs have the ability to grow quickly and weaken the associated bone, resulting in pathological fractures as an early symptom. ABCs are usually asymptomatic, but they can cause local pain and swelling. Only 2-3% of ABCs occur in the head and neck region, with the mandible and maxilla being the most common sites of occurrence.

Aneurysmal bone cysts can be surgically or non-surgically treated. Surgical intervention, regardless of where the ABCs are located in the body is the mainstay of treatment. En-bloc resection is the gold standard of treatment for ABCs because it has the lowest risk of recurrence and also because majority of ABCs are found elsewhere other than head and neck. More delicate surgical techniques, such as curettage with bone grafting, are preferred due to the delicate nervous and vascular structures found in the head and neck region, as well as aesthetic considerations.

The present paper highlights the screening, examination and management of two cases of ABC that were accidentally diagnosed during routine dental checkup.
