Cherubism is a rare hereditary fibro-osseous lesion characterized by painless expansion of jaws in childhood and is known to regress without treatment after puberty. Cherubism is a familial disease and presents an autosomal dominant trait with 100% penetrance in males and 50???70% penetrance in females. Cherubism is not a common disease. Recent genetic studies revealed that Cherubism is a genetically mediated disorder. Usually, Cherubism appears between two to five years. We present a case report of familial cherubism in a 20-year-old female patient.
