1/3. cherubism and its charlatans.

    cherubism is a rare hereditary condition characterised by progressive cystic proliferation of the mandible and maxilla in childhood, followed by post-pubertal involution of the process and jaw remodelling in adulthood. Its name is derived from the cherubic appearance that results from the jaw hypertrophy. Here, we present the case of a young boy with cherubism, in the context of his pedigree, to illustrate the clinical characteristics and their variable expression. We also seek to distinguish cherubism from central giant cell granuloma and giant cell tumour of the jaws, with which it holds a false synonymity.

2/3. An extreme case of cherubism.

    We describe an 8-year-old boy who presented with severe facial swelling. This progressed rapidly and 17 months later he died of gastrointestinal and pulmonary infections. The diagnosis was initially brown tumour associated with hyperparathyroidism, but this was revised in the light of laboratory investigations that were within the reference ranges, and normal appearance of the parathyroids on exploration to that of an extreme case of cherubism that behaved in a locally aggressive manner.

3/3. cherubism: diagnosis, treatment, and comparison with central giant cell granulomas and giant cell tumors.

    An extensive case of cherubism in a 17-year-old girl with no apparent familial history is presented. The rationale for treatment is presented and is compared with previous reports that have advocated nontreatment. The clinical and histologic similarities of cherubism to central giant cell granuloma and the giant cell tumor of bone are also discussed.
