The goal of this work is to highlight that symptomatic cases of bacterial FCOD overlap of maxillary bones, can not be solved with drug therapy alone, radical surgery leads to a recovered fully demonstrates clinically and with radiology.

Because ceemnto the symptomatology, the patient was submitted to surgery and the lesion and the second inferior right molar were removed. FCOD lesions that are not infected do not require any treatment procedure, but because of the septic complication and the symptomatology, a decision was made to extract this molar, to enucleate the lesion and to do histological examination.

The mandibular left first molar and the maxillary left first premolars were endodontically treated as a result of recurrent caries and crown fracture involving the pulp. The diagnosis was based on clinical and radiographic features only. Miyake M, Nagahate S: Medical history revealed hyperlipidaemia controlled by statin group anti-lipidemic drugs and no other systemic disorders were reported. Minor radiolucency could be recognized around the roots while the high dense deposit within the bone is obvious at the mandibular associated lesions.

However, FGC is an autosomal trait genetic osswous and affects mostly children. Because of the asymptomatic nature of the lesions, no further treatments were proposed.

Cemento-osseous dysplasia is a non-neoplastic process usually confined to the tooth bearing areas of jaws or edentulous alveolar process. References White S, Pharoah M.

Florid Cemento-osseous dysplasia needs an accurate clinical and radiographic assessment to be diagnosed. This paper reports a case of a 15 year clinical and radiographic follow up of florid cemento osseous dysplasia. Pathology of the maxilla and mandible Musculoskeletal disease stubs. We, the authors would like to thank Dr. Replies to my comment.
