Amazing case never seen this level of bone loss in agressive periodontitis!! @Dr. Rustom Lahon Sir how does that even happen

A chronic case of aggressive Periodontitis.....

Sir I beg to disagree with you... there is no such terminology or description of a case which could be chronic case of aggressive... as if it's aggressive it will remain that. Also without looking for all criteria simply based on the bone loss you can't term a case as aggressive. Kindly share your opinion.
