The present paper describes the radiological features, including CT, of a case of cherubism followed for a relatively long period. The case demonstrated the active phase of the lesion, which progressed from grade 1 to grade 3 during a 6 year period. The radiographic signs, such as increased radiolucency, inflammatory signs and root resorption as well as laboratory data seemed to be important to diagnose the stage of cherubism and to predict the clinical course of the disease.
