This article describes the clinical, radiographic, and pathologic features of tumors and tumorlike lesions affecting the bones of the head and neck region. Emphasis is placed on common bone lesions affecting the craniofacial skeleton, particularly those that occur with more frequency or those that are unique to this part of the skeleton. Several of these lesions pose a diagnostic challenge to the pathologist. To ensure that a correct diagnosis is rendered, it is of utmost importance that accurate and detailed clinical and radiographic information is available.
