Abstract: Conservative surgery, without extensive bone removal, for CGCGs of the jaws in children was successful in our cases. Additional repair of the osseous defect when needed and teeth rehabilitation as soon as possible are essential in children population. Follow-up needs to be long-lasting, to secure bone healing and unaffected jaw growth. Findings in children population of the present study were similar to those of adults or adolescent populations, although a rather low recurrence rate has been noticed.
