Abstract

Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG) accounts for 1% to 7% of all benign lesions of the head and neck. It often arises in the maxilla followed by mandible and affects children and young adults. Free flap surgery in the pediatric population has gained widespread acceptance regarding its technical utility and reliability. One-stage reconstruction combining osseous free flaps with virtual surgical planning are becoming the standard for mandibular defects. The aim of this study was the present the case with fibula free flap with virtual surgical planning for reconstruction after resection of multiple central giant cell granulomas of the mandible and to assess the feasibility and safety of this technique.
