Though they are benign in nature they have a unique tendency to recur after conservative treatment. Therefore most appropriate management still remains controversial. Treatment modalities advocated ranges from conservative approach of enucleation to most radical form of resection.

The patient was kept under follow up without any signs of recurrence for past 8 years.
