Aneurysmal bone cyst(ABC) is a benign bone tumour which mainly affects long bones and rarely affects craniofacial bones. It is relatively rare lesion and exhibit variable clinical and radiographic presentations. They are two types “primary” when present solely and “secondary” when preceded by other bony tumors. Radiographically, it exhibits unilocular to multilocular appearance with cortical plates' expansion; and fluid level on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Histopathologically, it shows three types: solid, mixed, and vascular. The surgical resection is the treatment of choice wing to its high recurrence rate. We present here a rare case of ABC in a 9-year-old male patient present in the anterior mandible crossing midline.
