Abstract

Introduction

The Cementoblastoma is a benign ectomesenchymal odontogenic neoplasm of the jaw, arising from an exuberant production of cemental tissue continuous with the roots of teeth (usually mandibular posteriors), resulting in a calcified mass adherent with the root apices.

Case Presentation

A curious case of a large Cementoblastoma, the size and shape of a ping pong ball, is presented, the first of its kind ever reported to involve the internal / medial / lingual aspect of the mandible, and presenting with unusual and deviant features.

Discussion & Conclusion

The Cementoblastoma is usually associated with certain inherent and pathognomonic features, making it rather straightforward to identify and diagnose. Strikingly uncharacteristic clinical, radiographic and histologic attributes presented in this case, made this ‘out of the ordinary’ and ‘Maverick’-like Cementoblastoma, arduous to diagnose, nevertheless, making it an interesting, informative and curious Case Study. This report has brought to light for the first time, several new facets of the Cementoblastoma.
