CORDOVA, Carla et al. Maxillary fibrous dysplasia. From diagnosis to treatment. Case report. Vive Rev. Salud [online]. 2023, vol.6, n.18, pp.895-906.  Epub 25-Sep-2023. ISSN 2664-3243.

Fibrous dysplasia can occur in any person due to a mutation in the first months of gestation. These are benign bone lesions in young patients, in which the normal bone tissue is replaced by fibrous connective tissue, due to a functional alteration of the cells, being this the prelude to a neoplasm. The aim of this article is to present a local case of Maxillary Fibrous Dysplasia, emphasizing the most relevant clinical, radiographic, pre and postoperative management. Therefore, we describe the case of an adolescent male patient, affected by fibrous dysplasia in the right hemimaxillary, who underwent the necessary imaging and histopathological studies to obtain the definitive diagnosis and decide the least invasive approach possible in compliance with facial aesthetic standards; an intraoral approach was performed for bone shaving, with conscious sedation under strict supervision of the specialist in anesthesiology and resuscitation. Once the desired contour was achieved through the use of high and low speed handpieces, the tissues were sutured and the patient was discharged ambulatory and in good general health.
