Central giant cell lesion (CGCL) is a benign intraosseous lesion that usually accompany the gnathic bones in the anterior region, mostly crossing the midline. Its clinical features involve cortical expansion, tooth displacement, and root resorption. Pain may occur in 20% of cases. Histopathological characteristics are like other pathological entities, being necessary discarding them. In this case, a 53-year-old female presented an expansive legion in the anterior mandible with tooth displacement and pain. After incisional biopsy, the result was CGCL. Surgical planning involved manufacturing a biomodel, bending the reconstruction plate to give the correct mandibular arch perimeter. After that, it was performed a segmental resection and installation of a reconstruction plate using a cervical approach. The patient is under follow-up with no signs of recurrence or complications.
