Unicameral bone cysts are encountered commonly in the proximal metaphyseal region of the long bones in children and adolescents. Identical lesions with similar etiology are found mostly in the mandible. Clinically, these lesions are usually asymptomatic, and the majority of cases are diagnosed fortuitously by chance as radiographic findings. Normally, they are empty cavities sometimes having a thin lining of connective tissue without epithelium containing serosanguinous fluid, clots, erythrocytes, fibrin and giant cells. Symptoms include swelling, pain, and rarely, labial paresthesia. Over half of the patients give a history of significant trauma to the area. Here, we present a case of unicameral cyst in an 8-year-old patient who presented with pain, swelling, and both buccal and lingual cortical plate expansion with no significant history of trauma.
