Abstract: Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is a clinical condition characterized by the presence of exposed necrotic bone in the maxillofacial region. Its pathogenesis is still undetermined, but may be associated with risk factors such as bisphosphonates. The aim of this paper is to report a case of ONJ in a patient with metastatic prostate cancer and a history of Denosumab use.
Keywords: osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ), human RANKL monoclonal antibody, bisphosphonates, dental extraction, metastases.
