Our case occurred in the maxilla, which is a very rare site, and radiographically it depicted an unusual presentation with multilocular radiolucency.
Subsequent x-rays should show that the lesion's growth has stabilised and is progressively losing its margins and its radiolucency.

Peek-Optima HA Enhanced shares all of the material properties that originally made PEEK-Optima Natural an ideal material for spinal interbody fusion devices, including a modulus similar to that of cortical bone and radiolucency, allowing visualization of the fusion mass, according to a Cutting Edge Spine news release.
Radiographic examination was carried out by taking periapical radiograph with paralleling technique to access status of previous root canal treatment and extent and size of periapical radiolucency.
Peek-Optima HA Enhanced shares all of the material properties that originally made Peek-Optima Natural a choice for spinal interbody fusion devices, including a modulus similar to that of bone, radiolucency, biocompatibility and long-term stability, the company said.
Radiographic examination (fig 2) showed the presence of radiolucency around one implant (the third most distal) and an unfamiliar screw element in the last implant all this with good
Bite-wing or orthopantomograph images reveal a well-defined, unilocular radiolucency with a smooth border, showing minimal bone expansion and even cortication; it is often associated with an unerupted tooth (figure 1).
Conventional imaging using a single plain film of the abdomen typically shows a curvilinear radiolucency outlining the bladder wall.
Type-I: The lesion is generally a rather small uni-locular radiolucency or large multi-locular radiolucency, both with a rather well circumscribed border containing a network of fine trabeculae.
