Objectives: To present a rare pediatric case of Gorham disease with craniofacial involvement. Study design: Case report and literature review.

Methods: Literature review of craniofacial Gorham disease in pediatrics and discussion of a representative case within our health system.

Results: A nine year old male presented after mandibular dental trauma. Massive maxillofacial osteolysis ensued. Photographs and radiologic images demonstrate the dysmorphic facial features of this case of Gorham disease.

Conclusion: To the best of our knowledge, our case represents the fourth case in the literature to document Gorham disease in a male pediatric patient with mandibular involvement.
