    • "On surgical intervention, the bony cavity appeared to be empty. It has been noted that such content in the bone cavity may represent different stages in the development of traumatic bone cysts.[27] The cavity may contain either a small amount of straw-colored fluid, shreds of necrotic blood clot, fragments of fibrous connective tissue.[10] "

    ABSTRACT: Traumatic bone cyst is an uncommon non-epithelium lined cavity and is seen frequently in young individuals. The lesion occurs more commonly in the mandible, involving the posterior region. It is generally asymptomatic and is diagnosed on routine radiographic examination. The cystic cavity is usually empty and there is scanty material for histological examination. Surgical curettage is usually done and recurrence is rare. A case of traumatic bone cyst occurring in the anterior region of mandible in a young boy is presented. Following surgical intervention, plasma-rich-protein was placed in the cystic cavity. The lesion showed progressive resolution and bone regeneration of the cystic cavity within a short period of time.

    • "The CT scan showed the lesion was not associated with the impacted 48 tooth. Although IBC presents clinical and radiographic evidence of healing after surgery, cases of recurrence have been reported (MacDonald- Jankowski, 1995; Kraut and Robin, 2003; Suei et al., 2007; Kuhmichel and Bouloux, 2010).

    ABSTRACT: Idiopathic bone cavity (IBC) is a non-odontogenic intra-osseous lesion that affects the jaws and others bones. The aetiology of IBC remains unknown. IBC is frequently observed as a single radiolucent area with a corticated, well-defined border, a scalloped shape and a minimal effect on the surrounding structures. A case report of asynchronous IBC in a 17-year-old woman is presented. The first lesion occurred in the mandibular symphysis region, and the second IBC occurred in the right mandibular ramus. Both lesions were surgically treated, and the patient has been disease-free for 5 years.

    • "SBCs of the jaw bone appear to be far less frequent (1%), and the body of the mandible is usually affected (75%), mainly in the pre-molar and molar regions (Copete et al., 1998). Maxillary lesions may also occur, but these are considered exceptionally uncommon (Mitchell and Ward-Booth, 1984; Kuhmichel and Bouloux, 2010). "

    ABSTRACT: Simple bone cysts are well-defined intraosseous radiolucencies that often extend between the roots and appear clinically like empty cavities. This article aims to provide more information about this lesion with limited prominence in academic literature, to illustrate atypical cases, and to provide a review of the current literature. A series of six atypical cases of simple bone cysts is presented and their clinical, radiographic and microscopic characteristics, differential diagnosis, treatment and follow-up are discussed. Correct diagnosis of this entity is of key importance, since it presents with clinical & radiographic similarities to other bone lesions, some exhibiting more aggressive behaviour.
