Ophthalmic manifestations of cherubism.

Conference Paper

Cherubism is a rare craniofacial disorder characterized by progressive replacement of mandibular and maxillary bone with multicystic fibro-osseous tissue, potentially resulting in significant deformity and morbidity. The severity of the disorder is variable; more advanced disease may affect the orbit and impact vision. We detail the ophthalmological findings in 2 patients, 7 and 8 years of age, with cherubism.
