This chapter describes the more common lesions encountered in bones of the maxillofacial skeleton, which are not derived from the odontogenic or tooth-forming apparatus. The entities include both non-neoplastic and neoplastic conditions with some conditions being unique to these bones. Entities that involve the maxillofacial bones secondarily by direct extension from adjacent structures are not discussed.

Management of patients with bone tumors and tumor-like lesions requires a team approach. Good communication between clinician, radiologist, surgeon, and pathologist is imperative for accurate interpretation and diagnosis of these neoplasms. Pathologists who attempt to make a diagnosis of bony lesions without the clinical and radiographic information are at a distinct disadvantage, and this is to be strongly discouraged.
