Abstract

Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is a rare benign lesion of the head and neck. A case of an ABC in a 12-year-old female is presented, the twentieth reported such case in the maxilla. Literature review shows ABC are common in the long bones; only 2% are in the head and neck. Of the 77 lesions in the head and neck found in the literature, 31(40%) are in the mandible, 20 (26%) are in the maxilla (including this case) and the remainder mainly in the skull. Current recommended treatment is curettage with enucleation first if technically possible.
