Localization of the bone cyst
The jaw as a manifestation site of the aneurysmatic bone cyst is rather rare. Instead, typical locations are the femur (lat. femur), the tibia (lat.
The symptoms of an aneurysmatic bone cyst in the jaw range from asymptomatic cysts to disfiguring deformities of the face due to enormous growth of the cyst. In the jaw, it is particularly important to rule out the possibility of a vascular cyst. Once this has been done, all diagnostic measures of an aneurysmatic bone cyst of any localization apply: imaging in the form of X-rays and MRI, as well as a biopsy for further examination of the tissue.
Accordingly, a general treatment in the form of surgical treatment is also necessary in the case of an aneurysmatic bone cyst in the jaw. The aneurysmatic bone cyst in the thigh is considered a typical localization. Sometimes a cyst in the thigh is conspicuous by pain, which may radiate into the legs and back.
Otherwise, an aneurysmatic bone cyst on the thigh can also be discovered as a chance finding. In young people up to the age of 20, an aneurysmatic bone cyst in the thigh tends to be less symptomatic. In older patients, the risk of a bone fracture is significantly increased.
It is not uncommon for them in particular to present with a fracture of the thigh resulting from an aneurysmatic bone cyst. Due to the cystic space requirement, the bony structure is weakened, less stable and susceptible to fracture even at lower loads. The aneurysmatic bone cyst on the thigh is diagnosed by means of an X-ray and MRI scan and then treated accordingly by surgery.
