Gorham’s disease of the mandible: radiological features

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The most conspicuous element of Gorham’s disease is its radiographic features, wherein massive disappearance of the mandible is observed. We report a case of an adolescent boy with massive osteolysis of the mandible in whom the diagnosis of Gorham’s disease was made. A 14-year-old boy was referred to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre, Kuala Lumpur, for the management of a massive mandibular deformity. He was diagnosed with a hemangioma-like lesion at 1 year of age. The disease had progressed for an unknown number of years. Plain X-rays and computed tomography images were examined for reconstructive surgery planning. Gorham’s disease is self-limiting, but has catastrophic results. The role of imaging is huge, particularly for reconstructive surgery planning.
