The treatment of CEOT has ranged from simple enucleation or curettage to radical and extensive resection, such as hemimandibulectomy
Surgical treatment hemimandibulectomy
and hemiglossectomy had resulted in a large facial deformity.
At that time, she underwent an excisional biopsy and hemimandibulectomy
, and the mass was diagnosed histologically as a giant-cell tumor.
The ameloblastoma was treated by hemimandibulectomy, and the adenoid cystic carcinoma was managed by resection of the soft palate and the surrounding tissue and bone followed by a 6-week course of radiotherapy.
Some 22 months after the hemimandibulectomy, the patient noticed a painless mass in her soft palate.
A white, 70-year-old woman with a history of a T4N0 squamous cell carcinoma of the left mandibular alveolar ridge was treated primarily with a left hemimandibulectomy
, a partial glossectomy, a left selective neck dissection (levels I through IV), and reconstruction with a radial forearm free flap.
After a thorough discussion of the findings, our patient underwent a modified radical neck dissection and hemimandibulectomy
as described later in this report.
