Localized gingival enlargements are more commonly seen and it becomes sometimes difficult to differentiate between them clinically. In order to identify these localized gingival lesions, histopathology examination is the key of diagnosis. The Peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) is one such reactive lesion described with various synonyms and is believed to arise from periodontal ligament comprising 9% of all gingival growths. POF is a focal, non-neoplastic, relatively uncommon reactive tumor that often arises from the interdental papillae and is more common in maxillary anterior region with more female predilection and most common in children and young adults. The treatment of choice is surgical excision of the lesion, including periosteum, to prevent recurrence. Here is a rare case of POF reported in 16 year old female in mandibular anterior region.
