Taking on a “Giant” Giant Cell Granuloma

On Oct. 1, 2017, Aarti Sarin noticed some swelling along her 3-year-old daughter Shivaya’s right jaw. It turned out to be a central giant cell granuloma, not a malignant cancer but an aggressive tumor that was eating away her right jawbone. Johns Hopkins Children's Center pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeon Jordan Steinberg resected the tumor and replaced the jawbone with one of the patient’s ribs as a graft.
