A case of brown-tumor of the vomer in a 21-year-old woman is described. The term giant cell lesions encompasses a variety of conditions. Three distinct entities are found in the facial area i.e. giant cell reparative granuloma, true giant cell tumor and brown-tumor. After having described the clinical, radiological and histopathological characteristics of the lesion, emphasis is placed on the importance of clinical, anamnestic, laboratory, radiological and histological findings in accurately differentiating the various types of giant cell lesions of the facial skeleton.
