Resumen

QUINTANA DIAZ, Juan Carlos; PINILLA GONZALEZ, Rafael  y  QUINTANA GIRALT, Mayrim. Gardner´s syndrome. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2012, vol.49, n.3, pp.251-255. ISSN 0034-7507.

Gardner's syndrome, a variant of familial adenomatous polyposis, is a dominant autosomal inherited disease characterized by multiple intestinal polyps together with extra-intestinal manifestations including multiple osteomas, connective tissue tumors, thyroid carcinomas, hypertrophied pigmented epithelium of the retina, and also frequent retained supernumerary teeth and odontomas. The objective of this paper was to describe the management of a patient with Gardner's syndrome at the maxillofacial surgery service in the province of Artemisa. The clinical case of a male patient aged 20 years, who went to the maxillofacial service on account of increased volume of the facial area in three sites. The X-rays showed radiopaque images characteristic of osteomas whereas rectosigmoidoscopy revealed intestinal polyps. The osteomas were surgically removed under general anesthesia including condylectomy on the left side. The histological-pathological diagnosis was osteoid osteoma. One year after the surgical procedure, the clinical exam showed esthetic and functional recovery and the radiographies disclosed good bone regeneration in the mandibular angle where the biggest osteoma was found. The patient has recovered very satisfactorily, with excellent oral opening.
