Abstract

Ossifying fibroma (OF) is classified as, and behaves like, a benign bone neoplasm. It is often considered to be a type of fibro-osseous lesion (FOL). It can affect both mandible and the maxilla, particularly the mandible. This bone tumour consists of highly cellular, fibrous tissue that contains varied amounts of bone or cementum resembling calcified tissue. Present case is an unusual report of central ossifying fibroma involving the left side of mandible in an 18 year old female patient, who presented to the department with a painless hard swelling. The lesion was treated by surgical resection and reconstruction.
