Mandibular cysts are generally benign neoplasms, may be of odontogenic origin and vary in size and severity. Mandibular cysts can expand, injuring large extensions of bone tissue, involving the stability of the teeth.
Various techniques are used to surgically remove the mandibular cyst, enucleation when the cyst is small, or marsupialization when it is large.
We share the case of surgical removal (marsupialization) of a large mandibular cyst in a pediatric patient, and the use of a multipurpose space maintainer.
