The aim of this study was to determined demographic, clinical and radiographic features of Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG) of the jaws, for the first time, in north east Iran. In this retrospective study, records of patients with definitive diagnosis of CGCG were extracted from the archive of our faculty from 2004 to 2007. The patient's age, sex, duration and clinical features of the lesions, were evaluated. Radiographs were evaluated for radiographic patterns. Of 1232 existing files in our archive (between 2004 and 2008), 18 cases were diagnosed as CGCG. The age range of our patients was between 7 to 65 years with the mean age of 21.5 years. Most of cases (61.1) were presented in females and 7 cases in males. Most lesions were located in the mandible (83.3). The most common finding recorded in our patients was a Painless bony expansion of the jaw. Cortical perforation and soft tissue expansion was reported in 9 cases. In most cases, a well defined multilocular radiolucency was observed in OPG, while tooth displacement was seen only in 7 cases. Although, demographic and clinical findings of patients with CGCG in our area were similar to other studies, but some differences were observed in radiographic examination. © 2010 Asian Network for Scientific Information.
