This report aims to assist the clinician to form an appropriate differential diagnosis and treatment plan for a cyst hereby preventing the recurrence. The representative tissue was received in 10% formalin, which measured around 1 × 1 cm in diameter. About 5 μm thick sections were obtained from paraffin-embedded tissues that had been processed and stained with routine hematoxylin and eosin. The stained sections were then reviewed. Examination of paraffin-embedded sections showed microscopically connective tissue made up of mature collagen fibers, fibroblasts and showing numerous multinucleated giant cells with foci of osseous structures thus giving a final diagnosis of Central giant cell granuloma
