This case report published in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Cases reviews presentation and currently used therapies for Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG) while describing a uncommon case of central giant cell granuloma occurring in a 45 year old female who presented with a swelling in relation to the left edentulous mandible.

Surgical curettage of the lesion along with reconstruction and local delivery of steroid in the cavity was done allowing for the best esthetic and functional result with no recurrence during follow up.
