Cherubism is a rare self-limiting nonneoplastic disease of the bone characterized by bilateral painless enlargement of the jaws giving a cherubic appearance to the patient. It is an autosomal-dominant disorder due to mutations in the SH3 domain-binding protein 2 gene on chromosome 4p16.3, but may occur sporadically. Here, we describe the clinical, radiological, and cytological features of cherubism in a 12-year-old girl.
