Non- epithelial bone cysts of the jaw
MetadataShow full item record
Aneurysmal Bone Cysts (ABC) and Solitary Bone Cysts (SBC), both non-epithelial cysts of the jaws are defined as benign lesions of an unclear aetiology. There is limited literature available on these two primary non-epithelial cysts of the jaws, especially in African populations. This retrospective study focused on the clinical and radiographic features, as well as management of the non-epithelial cysts of the jaws presenting at the University of the Western Cape Oral Health Centre from 1970-2018. The aim of this study was to describe the clinical and radiological features of non-epithelial cysts of the jaws that presented at the Departments of Maxillo-Facial and Oral Surgery and Diagnostics and Radiology at the University of the Western Cape Oral Health Centre as well as their management and recurrence patterns.
