Eroglu CN, Kaplan V. Cystic process during the follow-up of a focal cemento-osseous dysplasia. J Case Rep Images Dent 2016;2:28–32.
Focal cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) is a benign and asymptomatic fibro-osseous malformation of the jaws. Etiology of FCOD is not clear. It is incidentally detected on radiographic examination.
A 23-year-old female case of FCOD together with a residual cyst and a simple bone cyst occurred in the same region within a five-year follow-up period is presented.
The FCOD is a lesion that certainly needs long-term follow-up. The clinicians should be alert for different clinical outcomes ranging from simple bone cyst to florid cemento-osseous dysplasia during follow-up.
