Central Giant Cell Granuloma (CGCG) is a lesion involving the bones of the body. Any bone can be involved but most commonly, it occurs in the jaws. It mostly affects females in younger age group. It is present more often in the mandible than in the maxilla and in the posterior region. The clinical and radiological features are not pathognomic of this lesion. The diagnosis is based on histopathology only. However, in recent times due to advent of high resolution CT scans, it shows typical features, thereby helping in diagnosing the case and knowing the exact extent and margins of the lesion so as to plan surgical resection accordingly. This article presents case of aggressive CGCG in 28 year old female patient. All investigations including CT scan were done and surgical resection was carried out. Post-treatment follow up did not show any recurrence.
