Imaging Quiz Case 1
Muzaffer Kanlikama, MD, Semih Mumbuç, MD, Gaziantep, TürkiyeA 24-year-old man presented with a 3-year history of a gradually growing swelling in the lower jaw area, the mandibular angle, and the right parotid gland. He had no history of dental abscess or extraction and complained only of minimal pain. Physical examination revealed an obvious facial deformity. There was a swelling on the right, approximately 4×5 cm in diameter, that extended from the ramus to the mandibular angle. The swelling was medium-hard, fixed, and painful by palpation. On axial computed tomography of the jaw, a monocular cyst, 6×4 cm in diameter, extending from the superior portion of the ramus to the angle of the right mandible, was detected. Cortical erosion was also present, but there was no unerupted tooth (Figure 1).What is your diagnosis?Imaging Quiz Case 2Muzaffer Kanlikama, MD, Semih Mumbuç, MD, Gaziantep,
