Approximately 10% to 20% of all cases of eosinophilic granuloma occur in the jaws. A palpable mass with or without pain is the most frequent presenting clinical feature. Less common clinical signs include gingivitis, loose teeth, and oral ulceration with poor healing. We report a case of monostotic mandibular eosinophilic granuloma in a 38-year-old woman that initially manifested mandibular body fracture, an unusual and poorly documented clinical sign for this disease. The clin-ical and radiographic features, differential diagnosis, and treatment plan of the case are presented.
