One of the clinical forms of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is eosinophilic granuloma which has more predilection in children and young adults. The reported case is of eosinophilic granuloma in a 25-year-old male involving anterior mandible and posterior maxilla and appearing as destructive lesions involving gingiva and alveolar bone. EG should be considered as a differential diagnosis whenever there is a bony destructive lesion involving alveolar bone of the Jaws. Early diagnosis and surgical intervention will resolve the lesion.
