Osteoblastoma of the Hard Palate in a Child: A Rare Case
González-Mourelle, Alicia / Pombo Castro, Maria / Vázquez Mahía, Inés / Patiño Seijas, Beatriz / López-Cedrún, José Luis
Benign osteoblastoma is a rare bone tumour characterised histologically by the production of woven bone spicules, which are bordered by prominent osteoblasts. It mainly affects young adults. We report a rare case of benign osteoblastoma of the maxilla in a 7-year-old boy who presented with a painful swelling on the left hard palate. An incisional biopsy was interpreted as osteoblastic neoplasm most suggestive of osteoblastoma. After excision of the tumour there has been no recurrence for 2 years.
