An aneurysmal bone cyst is a rare bone lesion. Its origin and precise nature remain unknown. It is seen as a locally-destructive, rapidly expandable, benign multicystic mass. We report a 17-year-old boy with an aneurysmal bone cyst of the maxilla, with extensive local involvement and bony destruction that was treated surgically. There was no recurrence noted after four years of follow-up.
