INTRODUCTION
Fibro osseous lesions are poorly defined lesions of the jaws and cranio-facial bones. The diagnosis is best arrived at through a combination of clinical symptoms, excisional biopsy and radiology.
OBJECTIVES
Present the diagnosis and treatment of the monostotic intraoral fibro osseous growth of the left mandible through surgical excision
METHODS
A young native Indian breed(Rajapalayam) aged 13 months was presented with a fast growing, painless, cauliflower like in appearance, non-ulcerating smooth surfaced and hard swelling in the left mandible and extending from the level of the canine to the fourth premolar tooth.
Radiographs of the left jaw showed diffuse radiolucent area involving the entire area of the mandible extending from the level of the canine to the fourth premolar tooth.
Excisional biopsy revealed fibro osseous dysplasia.
A left hemi-mandibulectomy was performed allowing a margin of one centimeter on either borders under xylazine-atropine-propofol-sevoflurane anaesthesia.
RESULTS
Histopathological studies revealed acanthotic nonkeratinised squamous epithelium with an underlying mass composed of bland spindle shaped cells surrounded by moderate amount of fibrovascular stroma and trabeculae of woven bone. The bony trabeculae show focal areas lined by single layer of osteoblasts.
There was no evidence of any dysplastic tissue.
CONCLUSIONS
Identification and differentiation of benign fibro osseous proliferations like fibrous dysplasia from malignant osteosarcoma in a young canine patient is important from a prognostic perspective. Surgical resection en- mass provides quick and reliable relief to the patient.
