Portuguese Abstract: Renal osteodystrophy (ROD) is the bone pathology that occurs as an uncommon complication related to the several alterations in mineral metabolism present in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This paper describes two cases of severe ROD affecting the maxilla and mandible and causing facial disfigurement of a young and a middle-aged female patient with CKD. Both patients had a history of secondary hyperparathyroidism, previously treated by surgery. The pathogenesis of the disease, as well as its clinical, imaging, and histopathological features, and management of the patient are discussed.
