We report a case of an 8-year-old girl who presented with bilateral central giant cell granulomas of the posterior mandible. Characteristic facial features and a history of pulmonary stenosis led us to suspect a diagnosis of Noonan syndrome. A medical geneticist confirmed this. This case report will discuss the salient features of this diagnosis.
