LESION, contracts. In the civil law this term is used to signify the injury suffered, in consequence of inequality of situation, by one who does not receive a full equivalent for what he gives in a commutative contract.
     2. The remedy given for this injury, is founded on its being the effect of implied error or imposition; for in every commutative contract, equivalents are supposed to be given and received. Louis. Code, 1854. Persons of full age, however, are not allowed in point of law to object to their agreements as being injurious, unless the injury be excessive. Poth. Oblig. P. 1, c. 1, s. 1, art. 3, Sec. 4. But minors are admitted to restitution, not only against any excessive inequality, but against any inequality whatever. Poth. Oblig. P. 1, c. 1, s. 1, art. 3, Sec. 5; Louis. Code, art. 1858.
     3.

There are 3 variants of adenomatoid odontogenic tumour (6-8) the follicular type (accounting for 73% of cases), which has a central lesion associated with an embedded tooth; the extrafollicular type (24% of case), which has a central lesion and no connection with the tooth; and the peripheral variety (3% of cases).
However, even though bronchoscopy was selected first most frequently, it was selected as the first diagnostic test by a majority of the physician respondents as a group (>50%) for only 1 of the simulations (simulation 12: central lesion, >5 cm, pretest probability of malignancy 10%).
Although these further tests clearly indicated the presence of a central lesion, the physician's diagnostic strategy should not necessarily require such a weight of evidence before the physician pursues a definitive investigation with magnetic resonance imaging.

However when the ameloblastoma shows a typical expansile multilocular aspect, the differential diagnosis can include a variety of odontogenic or non-odontogenic lesions with similar characteristics like odontogenic keratocysts, aneurysmal bone cysts, adenomatoid odontogenic tumors, odontogenic myxomas, and giant cell central lesions.
