Maxillofacial Radiographic study of Gardner’s syndrome presenting with odontogenic myxoma: A rare case report
Loutfi Salti1, Michael Rasse2, Khaled Al-ouf3
Gardner syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease. It is characterized by a combination of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) of the intestine with extraintestinal changes as multiple osteomas and fibromas. Odontogenic Myxoma is a benign, aggressive intraosseous neoplasm. We report a rare case of a 14-year-old male patient with Gardner’s syndrome and odontogenic myxoma, which involved the entire left half of the mandible, resulting in a gross facial deformity, within a span of one year.
Key words: Gardner syndrome, odontoma, odontogenic myxoma, radiography.
