Central giant cell granuloma, formerly known as giant cell reparative granuloma, is considered as a reactive lesion to an unknown stimulus or a neoplastic lesion. The lesion mainly affects young adults and commonly involves mandible more than maxilla. When present in the maxilla, it is usually seen anterior to cuspids, but in this case, it was the posterior maxilla which was involved making it an unusual site for its occurrence. This case report describes a 20-year-old female patient presenting with a chief complaint of swelling of the left side of the face for 1-year. Depending on the clinical features and radiographic findings, a diagnosis of giant cell granuloma was made, which was surgically excised.
