A Case Report: An Unusual Case of Central Ossifying Fibroma


Samiksha Acharya*, Vidya K Lohe and Rahul R Bhowate

Central ossifying fibroma is a benign slow-growing tumor of mesenchymal origin and it tends to occur in the second and third decades of life, with predilection for women and for the mandibular premolar and molar areas. Clinically, it is a large asymptomatic tumor of aggressive appearance, with possible tooth displacement. Occasionally treated by curettage enucleation, this conservative surgical excision is showing a recurrence rate extremely low. The following article reports a case of a 13-year-old male patient, who presented with a very large ossifying fibroma in the maxilla, which was successfully treated by surgical intervention. A brief literature review of this lesion, focusing on the histology, clinical behavior, and management of these uncommon lesions is also conducted
