Abstract

Stafne cyst, also known as the stafne bone cavity is a concavity in the lingual cortex of mandible containing salivary gland tissue. These radiolucent areas are usually cortical defects occurred as a result of extension of the submandibular gland. This cyst is incidentally detected on the radiographs ordered for the other reasons. Our case report is on a male patient aged 44 years admitted to another center with the complaints of the pain in the jaw and left side of the face, and who underwent panoramic radiographic examination of the mandible, in addition to dental and mandible tomographies. Radiological findings correlate with Stafne cyst. Tegretol was commenced with the provisional diagnosis of atypical facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia. Panoramic radiography of the mandible was scheduled 6 months later for the follow up of the cyst.
