Intraosseous venous malformation of the mandible is rare. A 59-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for evaluation of a radiolucent lesion in the left body of the mandible that had been detected on a routine radiologic dental checkup. The patient wished for follow-up rather than operation. After 2 years' follow-up, the radiolucent lesion had slowly grown, and the patient decided to have an operation. The lesion was removed surgically using the piezosurgery system, and conservation of the inferior alveolar nerve was achieved under general anesthesia. After operation, she reported an initial change in sensation (paresthesia). The sensitivity was recovered after 6 months. Patient prognosis has been good to date, with no symptoms indicating recurrence. We used to treat intraosseous venous malformations using the piezosurgery system. The present report describes a patient with intraosseous venous malformation of the mandible by complete excision and conservation of the nerve. It was useful to use piezosurgery for conservation of inferior alveolar nerve.
