摘要

Osteochondroma is the most common benign tumor of the skeletal system. In the craniofacial skeleton, however, osteochondroma is uncommon. Even more rare is osteochondroma of the coronoid process. A review of the literature reveals only 31 reported cases of osteochondroma of the coronoid process of the mandible. The preponderance of patients were young men (67.7%) and most presented with a facial deformity. As a benign tumor, the problems with surgical treatment have dealt with the inaccessibility of the lesion and hence the surgical approach of choice. The previous surgical approaches have either been intraoral, external, or a combination of both. We present a transzygomatic approach via a coronal incision that gives excellent access and a good cosmetic result, and protects the facial nerve from damage.
