In brief: Cavity and neuralgia

Neuralgia-inducing cavitational osteonecrosis , refers to presence of cavitations in jaw bones (mandible and/or maxilla) in conjunction with chronic facial neuralgia.
The concept implies direct and causal relationship between the bone pathology (cavitations) and pain itself. Pain in this setting is commonly described as atypical facial neuralgia and is chronic in nature.
