Abstract

The radiographic diagnosis of typical Stafne bone cavity could be done easily with cyst-like round or oval radiolucency near the angle of the mandible, under mandibular canal with or without involving mandibular base, and no symptoms. However there are some atypical cases suggesting possible variations of this entity. We report a quite unusual case, where Stafne bone cavity was lastly included in the differential diagnosis list. Histological examination of salivary gland tissues confirmed the final diagnosis.
