osteolytic lesions

A 72-year-old male patient came to the department with a swelling in his mandible that had been present for 10 months. The swelling had gradually increased in size, and the patient had also lost teeth over time. Further investigations revealed that the patient had multiple myeloma, a type of hematological malignancy, which was initially manifested through lesions in the oral and maxillofacial region. It is important to examine osteolytic lesions carefully, both radiologically and pathologically, to identify cases of multiple myeloma. Such cases highlight the importance of investigating oral symptoms, which may lead to the diagnosis of serious underlying conditions.
