Stephen Brindley, BDS(Hons) / Robert A. Howell, BDS / John I. Cawood, BDS / Chris J. Butterworth, BDS(Hons), MPhil

PMID: 16796292

A case is presented in which diffuse lymphangiomatosis resulted in the complete loss of the maxillary dentoalveolar complex and underlying basal bone. The complex investigation and treatment of this patient over a 10-year period is presented, and the importance of a multidisciplinary team approach in providing a functional and esthetic rehabilitation is highlighted. The use of a vascularized bone graft based on the deep circumflex iliac artery and subsequent restoration with an implant-supported prosthesis is described.
