The most usual sign is swelling of the mandible and the maxilla with infrequent findings of pain and parathesia. Though the COF is reported more in females than males, more frequently in the anterior/premolar area of the maxilla, our patient was an 18-year-old male with occurrence in the posterior mandible.
As no parathesia or other nerve symptoms were reported and the neurological assessment was unremarkable, cubital tunnel syndrome, pronator quadratus syndrome and anterior interosseous nerve entrapment were ruled out.
