Ossifying fibroma form a part of the group of lesions called fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws. They are rare, benign, non-aggressive tumours commonly seen in head and neck region. They arise from a layer of fibrous connective?tissue surrounding the roots of teeth. This layer contains multipotential cells that are capable of forming cementum, lamellar bone, and fibrous tissue. The lesion is generally asymptomatic until the growth produces pain, paresthesias, and facial asymmetry. After radiological imaging complete surgical excision remains the treatment of choice followed by histopathological confirmation. This paper presents the case of a 13 year old male who presented with asymptomatic swelling of face, which was radiologically diagnosed as chondroblastoma of maxilla, turned out to be ossifying fibroma after histopathological examination. This paper emphasizes the need for correlation of clinical, radiological and histological findings before confirming the diagnosis.

Keywords: Ossifying fibroma, Fibro-osseous lesion, Chondroblastoma, Maxilla.
