After noticing changes in the asymmetry of 8 yr old Rylie’s face her family took her to AI Dupont where it was discovered that she had a mass consuming the maxilla and much of the bones on the left side of her face. After weeks of extensive testing it was finally realized to be an extremely rare Aggressive Giant Cell Granuloma Tumor. She was the first to be treated at AI Dupont for this type of Tumor.This is an aggressive disfiguring and damaging tumor that must be removed or it will continue to grow and consume her bones. Rylie underwent a 6hr surgery to remove the tumor from her palate, above her teeth, nasal orbit, sinus, cheek and under her eye orbit. Her chances of reoccurrence or very high and will undergo regular testing. Rylie is a strong little girl but she still needs your help to fight this unfortunate ailment.
