Microscopic findings demonstrated extensive areas of acellular necrotic bone with some inflammatory infiltrates, mainly neutrophils (Figure 3). No evidence of multiple myeloma or prostate adenocarcinoma infiltration was observed. Musculoskeletal magnetic resonance imaging showed bone sclerosis in the left posterior quadrant of the mandible, and bone gammography revealed an intense hypercaptation on the left jaw. Both histologic findings and imaging studies were consistent with the clinical diagnosis of BRONJ.
