Simple osteolysis, surrounded by a narrow bony

Simple bone cyst (SBC) of the jaws is
uncommon pseudocyst, representing nearly 1% of all jaw cysts 1. The
undetermined nature of the etiology and pathogenesis resulted in different
etiopathogenic processes, and thus, many different synonyms to accompany the
hypotheses (eg, solitary bone cyst, traumatic bone cyst, solitary bone cyst,
idiopathic bone cyst). SBC forms a cavity by osteolytic action. SBC is detected
in the first 2 decades of life (75%). Usually affecting the body of the
mandible (75%), with a possible posterior extension. 1 . n most cases, due to
its asymptomatic nature, it is usually discovered incidentally in the routine
radiographic examination. Typically showing a unilocular homogeneous
osteolysis, surrounded by a narrow bony condensation, giving the
straightforward radiographic interpretation of an SBC. This article reports an
uncommon case of Simple bone cyst of the ramus and describes the clinical,
radiological features, and surgical findings of a simple bone cyst in the
ramus.
