Figure 3: (a-d) Computed tomography Facial Bones and PNS: showing thickened skull vault with loss of definition of inner and outer tables, increased bone density with multiple lytic and sclerotic lesions of skull vault, clivus, facial bones and alveolar arch. Gross expansion and thinning of the cortex of bilateral maxilla, greater and lesser wings of sphenoid, pterygoid plates and mandible. Resorption of paranasal sinuses and mastoids. Expanded mandible displacing the tongue posteriorly causing narrowing of the oropharynx and hypopharynx. Destruction of the alveolar arches giving “floating teeth appearance”
