Abstract

Central ossifying fibroma is a relatively rare, benign, non-odontogenic tumor of the jaw, a subdivision of fibro-osseous lesions. The lesion originates from periodontal membrane and is usually seen in tooth bearing areas particularly of the mandible. This bone tumor consists of highly cellular, fibrous tissue that contains varying amounts of calcified tissue resembling bone, cementum or both. It is most commonly seen between the third and fourth decades of life. The most common location is the mandible. The lesion is generally asymptomatic until the growth produces a noticeable swelling and mild deformity. Displacement of teeth may be an early clinical feature. Here we present a case of cemento-ossifying fibroma of the jaw not only based on clinical characteristics but also radiographic and histopathologic features as an adjunct.

Keywords: Benign odontogenic tumour, Fibro-osseous lesions, Ossifying fibroma.
