Abstract

Eosinophilic granuloma is the most common form of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and corresponds with bone lesions characterized by pain, rapid growth, and high tendency of recurrence after inadequate curettage. It is a rare disease that is difficult to diagnose clinically and radiographically because it mimics other odontogenic cysts and tumors. In this report, the reconstruction of an osseous defect with an iliac graft and a modified implant-supported hybrid prosthesis after surgical excision of an eosinophilic granuloma in the mandible of a 27-year-old male patient was described. The patient was satisfied with the functional and esthetic results of the implant-supported restoration and a 6-year follow-up showed no sign of recurrence.
