Abstract: Cherubism is a benign hereditary condition of the mandible and/or maxilla, usually found in children between 2-5 years of age giving characteristic cherubic appearance to the patient. On radiography, the lesions exhibit bilateral multinuclear radiolucent areas. Histopathology reveals multinucleated giant cells in the background of proliferating fibrous connective tissue. The present case report describes cherubism in a 10 yr. old male child and briefly reviews literature on this report.
