The article presents information concerning the diagnosis of idiopathic osteosclerosis and a description of the condition. Idiopathic osteosclerosis is defined as a localized, intrabony, radiopaque lesion that is not the sequela of infection or systemic disease. These lesions are dense, trabeculated, noninflammatory bone on histologic evaluation. Information on the cause of the condition, symptoms at clinical presentation, and its radiographic appearance are presented.
