Central giant cell granuloma is an uncommon, benign, proliferative lesion of unknown etiology, most commonly affecting anterior mandible of younger age group. Early diagnosis may be of benefit to the patient as conservative treatment modalities may be used as compared to radical surgical treatment. Calcitonin as a therapy for central giant cell granuloma of the jaws is a promising alternative to surgical curettage, particularly for larger lesions. We report a case of central giant cell granuloma of mandible in a 14-year-old female patient, who is being treated solely with intranasal spray of salmon calcitonin for 14 months showing greater results.
