Abstract

The osteoma is a benign, bone-forming lesion that is not considered a true neoplasm. It almost exclusively affects the flat bones of the skull and face. Jaw lesions may cause facial deformity and impair oral function. Multiple osteomas may be associated with Gardner's syndrome. Clinically and radiographically, osteomas may need to be differentiated from other bone-forming lesions. This article describes a cancellous osteoma of the left maxillary molar and tuberosity area and differentiates it from other benign and malignant lesions, including the parosteal osteosarcoma.
