Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia Addressed Through the Intraoral and Nasal Access
AbstractBackground: The Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia is a benign disease, pseudoneoplasic, rare and asymptomatic of slow growth promoting replacement of bone tissue by an amorphous connective tissue, promoting bone deformation that can invade and cause compression of important structures such as the skull base and facial orbital bone. This study aims to present a clinical case of a Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia, emphasizing an alternative of an aesthetic surgical access by an intraoral approach. Case Report: We report the clinical case of patient IMS, 21 years of age with craniofacial fibrous dysplasia presenting deformity of the left facial middle third in orbital, nasal and maxilla region who was submitted to surgery for facial recontouring. The surgical access was intraoral associated with access for rhinoplasty. A lesion scrape was realized for facial recontouring and nasal osteotomy for correction of deviation caused by the injury. Conclusions: It was concluded that the surgical technique associated with the intraoral access with nasal extension is an important tool in addressing these lesions, allowing a large surgical field and satisfactory aesthetic and functional results without facial scars.
