Abstract

Osteoblastoma is a rare tumor of bone representing less than 1% of all tumors of the maxillofacial region. This is a neoplasm of bone characterized by a proliferation of osteoblasts forming bone trabeculae. Because the clinical feature of benign osteoblastoma is nonspecific and osteoblastoma has a pleomorphic histologic appearance, the differential diagnosis is difficult problem. We studies the case records 3 new patients with osteoblastoma. We discussed the case from clinical, radiologic, and histologic feature for differential diagnosis. Three cases from our clinic is reported and analized with previously described cases.
