Dr. Parveen Akhter Lone, Dr. Tahir Ahmed, Dr. Tabasum Ahmed and Dr. Vijay Kumar
Giant cells are large mononucleated or multinucleated cells that are usually seen to be associated with varied physiological as well as pathological conditions. Multinucleated giant cells (MGCs) are important mediators of tissue remodeling and repair and also for removal of foreign materials and various pathogens. Depending upon the mechanism of their formation these cells assume distinctly variable phenotypes. The Giant cell Lesions of oral cavity include central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) aneurysmal bone cyst, cherubism, traumatic bone cyst and jaw tumor of hyperparathyroidism. This article aims to study clinico-pathological features of patients with Peripheral Giant Cell Granuloma and central giant cell granuloma and evaluating their commonest etiological features
