Benign Cementoblastoma Involving Deciduous and Permanent Mandibular Molars: A Case Report
Cementoblastomas are rare benign odontogenic tumors. Diagnosis of these lesions must be made by an association of clinical, radiographic, and histopathological findings. Cementoblastomas rarely occur in both primary and permanent dentitions. We describe the sixth case of cementoblastoma in the literature with the involvement of both deciduous and permanent teeth. The aim of this case report is to present the clinicoradiopathologic features of a cementoblastoma in a 4.5-year-old boy with an unusual recurrence. The first clinical and radiographic features appeared on the deciduous mandibular second molar. The second lesion occurred 1 year after treatment at 5.5 years old, involving the permanent mandibular first molar, and a subsequent lesion was seen at age 8 years in the edentulous region of the extracted mandibular first molar. After the last surgery, there was no recurrence of the lesion at 6 months’ follow-up. Follow-ups of patients with cementoblastomas are highly recommended for an early detection of recurrences
