osteitis fibro´sa cys´tica rarefying osteitis with fibrous degeneration and the formation of cysts and the presence of fibrous nodules on the affected bones, due to osteoclastic activity secondary to hyperparathyroidism. If a tumor of the parathyroid gland is the cause of the hyperparathyroidism, treatment includes removal of the tumor. When the disease is generalized, all the bones are affected (von recklinghausen's disease). Orthopedic surgery may be necessary to correct severe bone deformities.

Surgical removal of lower third molars is the most common procedure carried out by oral and maxillofacial surgeons.1 Pericoronitis, caries, cystic lesions and periodontal problems are the most frequent causes that warrant removal of these teeth.2,3 The surgical procedure may be followed by complications such as pain, swelling, bleeding and less commonly alveolar osteitis, nerve paresthesia/anesthesia and occasionally jaw fracture.4
