Case Study
The article discusses a case study of a 34-year-old man who was suffering from an asymptomatic swelling in his maxillary right buccal vestibule apical. Some of the key elements of differential diagnosis of the patients include periapical inflammatory lesion with apical rarefying osteitis, unicystic ameloblastoma and chronic localized Langerhans cell histiocytosis. The study thus highlights that the rare intraoral malignancies should also be considered for differential diagnosis.
