The aggressive central giant cell granuloma is an neoplasm with unknown origin, which affects the jaws. The diagnosis is based on routine exams as uni or multiocular lesion. It can be associated to syndromes and endocrine changes. It is classified as aggressive and non-aggressive, based on clinic and radiographic features. The treatment can be pharmacologic or surgical, based on features like size, localization and behavior.
