Fibro-osseous lesions of the craniofacial bones comprise a diverse group of pathologic conditions that includes developmental
lesions, reactive or dysplastic diseases, and neo-plasms. They share many similar histo-pathological features with other nonfibro-
osseous disease processes that develop within the jaw bones. Thus a definitive diagnosis of fibro-osseous lesions (FOLs)
requires a correlation of the histological features with the clinical, radiographic and intra-operative findings. This study highlights
the importance of the role of multi-detector row CT images, in assessment of fibro-osseous lesions in craniofacial complex in patients
with known fibro-osseous lesions, facial disfigurement and facial swelling. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) including
reformations better delineate craniofacial complex anatomy than do single detector row CT images. It becomes possible to depict the
complete path of complex structures. It is valuable in diagnosis and in guiding the surgical interventions by allowing pre-operative
delineation of craniofacial complex anatomy. The proximity of the various components is best appreciated when the area is viewed in
axial and coronal sections and different reconstructive methods using sub-millimetric thickness. MDCT is a powerful diagnostic and
illustrative tool that will narrow the gap between the radiologists and the surgeons.
