It has a relative incidence of approximately 2 - 5 cases per million inhabitants per year. Eosinophilic granuloma is the most benign and localized form, may be solitary or multiple, primarily involves the skull and the facial bones. Here, we are presenting a case of patient complaining of just mandibular pain and ulcerations in mouth, the principal differential diagnoses included advanced periodontal disease or a periapical abscess of dental or periodontal origin. But, it was finally diagnosed to be a case of eosinophilic granuloma on histopathology.
