Figure 2: (A) A 17-year-old male patient presented to the clinic with a large radiolucent area including the right mandibular ramus, angle, and part of the body. The lower right second and third molars were involved in the lesion. The histopathological diagnosis was an odontogenic keratocyst. Active decompression/distraction sugosteogenesis (AD/DS) was initiated. (B) One month after AD/DS, the entire lesion has disappeared. The radiographic appearance is of woven, newly formed bone. (C) A 2-year follow-up image demonstrate consolidation of bone. From Drs. Pedro Rodríguez and Jaime Castro-Núñez with permission
