E-mail: moc. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. In thepast, the condition was known with a variety of names causing confusion in diagnosis and treatment. The condition is usually asymptomatic and needs no treatment as such.
The diagnosis of FCOD is made on the basis of typical clinico-radiological features and biopsy is usually not recommended due to the risk of postoperative infection. This paper reports a rare case of FCOD affecting mandible bilaterally in a forty-two years old woman. The patient was otherwise healthy, and her physical examination showed no significant abnormality. Intraoral examination revealed a carious left mandibular first permanent molar and a missing second permanent molar which was extracted due to caries 2 years ago.
Intraoral periapical radiograph showed well-defined irregularly shaped sclerotic masses corresponding to the roots of first and second permanent molar teeth of left mandible [ Figure 1 ]. Orthopantomogram showed multiple well-defined sclerotic masses with radiolucent border in both right and left molar region of the mandible [ Figure 2 ]. These sclerotic masses were surrounded by a thin radiolucent border and appeared to be unattached to the root apices. All teeth were vital.
The results of routine hemogram and serum alkaline phosphatase were within normal limits. Biopsy was not done as the case was diagnosed as FCOD on the basis of characteristic clinico-radiological features.
