Peripheral ossifying fibroma  [cached]
Das U,Azher U
Journal of the Indian Society of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry , 2009,
Abstract: The peripheral ossifying fibroma (POF) is a reac-tive gingival overgrowth occurring frequently in the anterior maxilla in teenagers and young adults. The pediatric patient with a POF has special manage-ment considerations compared to the adult, as it requires early recognition and treatment by the dentist. It requires proper treatment protocol with close postoperative follow-up. The present report describes a case of POF in a girl, which was surgically excised from the palatal mucosa in the maxillary incisor area. Some features of the differential diagnosis and therapy when it occurs are discussed.

Case Reports in Dentistry , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/190592
Abstract: The peripheral ossifying fibroma, a benign gingival overgrowth, occurs mainly in the anterior portion of the maxilla in young adults. The size of the lesion is usually less than 1.5 cm. We report a case of peripheral ossifying fibroma overlying the mandibular alveolar ridge of a 55-year-old female. MR scans showed a large exophytic soft tissue mass overlying mandibular alveolar ridge. The tumor revealed peripheral calcifications with slight erosion of adjacent cortical plate.

Abstract: Peripheral ossifying fibroma is a relatively uncommon gingival growth that is considered to be reactive in nature and postulated to appear secondary to irritation or trauma. They usually occur in young adults with a female predominance and are solitary in nature. We report a case of peripheral ossifying fibroma in a 55-year old female.

Journal of the Indian Society of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry , 2009,
Abstract: Juvenile aggressive ossifying fibroma is an uncommon and controversial, benign but aggressive osteogenic neoplasm of the jaws commonly occurring in children and young adults. Complete removal of the tumor at the earliest possible stage is recommended owing to its high recurrence rate of 30-58%. Reported here is a case of recurrent juvenile aggressive ossifying fibroma of the maxilla in a 15-year-old male treated with enucleation and curettage. A 10-month follow-up showed no signs of recurrence.

U. S. Pal, Nimisha Singh, Shailendra Kumar, R. K. Singh, Laxman R. Malkunje
Open Journal of Stomatology (OJST) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojst.2012.24062
Abstract: Cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF) of maxilla is comparatively rare lesion of the maxillofacial region. There is often a misdiagnosis in the category of fibroosseous lesions, owing to an overlap of clinical, histological and radiographic features amongst the separate entities. We present a case of giant maxillary COF causing extensive disfiguration of the face, along with extensive review of the clinico-pathologic and treatment aspects of the fibro-osseous lesions.
Bilateral Cemento Ossifying Fibroma of Mandible
Dinkar Desai,Arathi K,Samir Ahmed,Nisha Rai
Indian Journal of Dental Advancements , 2010,
Abstract: Cemento - Ossifying Fibromas are rare fibro-osseous lesions that affect the jawbone. It is a well-demarcated and occasionally encapsulated neoplasm that contains fibrous tissue and varying amounts of calcified tissue resembling bone, cementum, or both. Slow growth and lack of symptoms are the cardinal features with expansion of both buccal and lingual plates associated with the larger lesions. The current case of bilateral Cemento Ossifying Fibroma of mandible is reported because of its rarity and the paucity of information concerning them in the dental literature.

International journal of odontostomatology , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-381X2011000200007
Abstract: localized growths are commonly seen on the gingiva. many of these enlargements are considered to be reactive rather than neoplastic in nature. clinically differentiating one from the other as a specific entity is often not possible. histopathologic examination is needed in order to positively identify the lesion. the peripheral ossifying fibroma is one such lesion. we report in this study, the clinical report of a 20-yr-old male patient with a peripheral ossifying fibroma in the maxilla exhibiting significant size with the disease duration of 1 year. the signs of recurrence in spite of thorough excision and debridement exposed the need for further study of the causes of recurrence and possible modes to avoid the situation. clinical, radiographical and histological characteristics are discussed and recommendations regarding treatment and follow-up are provided.

Abstract: The presence of chronic renal disease (CRD) is a predisposing factor for the occurrence of soft and hard tissue lesions in the oral cavity. The cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF) is an uncommon benign fibroosseous lesion composed of fibrocellular component and calcified materials like cementum and woven bone. A 37-year-old female patient undergoing chronic haemodialysis reported to our institution with a complaint of slow growing, nontender swelling of mandible of 6-month duration. Computed tomography disclosed an ill-defined lesion showing thinning and expansion of buccal as well as lingual cortical plate with flecks of radiopacity in centre. Incision biopsy revealed histological characteristics consistent with cemento-ossifying fibroma. The lesion was excised under local anesthesia. The histopathological examination revealed irregularly shaped bone and cementum-like hard tissue calcifications contained within hypercellular fibrous tissue stroma, leading to a confirmation of the diagnosis of cemento-ossifying fibroma. This paper aims to provide light to the fact that the soft and hard tissues of the oral region may become susceptible to the development of pathological growths in case of some particular systemic conditions. 1. Introduction Chronic renal disease (CRD) can be defined as the progressive and irreversible decline in kidney functions and up to 90% of patients having renal insufficiency may present with oral signs and symptoms in soft and hard tissues either as a result of the disease itself or the treatment protocol [1]. Halitosis, altered taste and sensation, bone demineralization, loss of lamina dura, deep periodontal pockets, changes in saliva and poor oral hygiene are often associated with this condition, based on individual predisposition and the severity of the disease [1]. The knowledge of bone-related oral lesions in CRD patients is limited. Cemento-ossifying fibroma (COF) is a distinct form of benign fibroosseous lesions of the mandible and maxilla containing fibrous tissue and varying amounts of calcified tissue resembling bone, cementum, or both [2]. The pathologic nature of COF is not yet clearly understood. It is included under neoplastic group of fibro osseous lesions thought to arise from periodontal ligament [2]. The aim of this report is therefore to present a case of COF who was also suffering from CRD and describe clinical characteristics of these conditions. 2. Case Report A 37-year-old patient reported to outpatient department of our institution with a complaint of swelling of the lower jaw of six-month duration. There was

Abstract: El fibroma osificante central (fibroma cementificante / fibroma cemento osificante) es un tumor benigno óseo bien delimitado, se localiza principalmente en los maxilares aunque se puede presentar en los huesos orbital, frontal, paranasal y temporal. Se caracteriza por presentar un crecimiento y una tumefacción deformante de evolución lenta con una incidencia mayor en la mandíbula. El tratamiento consiste en la extirpación quirúrgica de la lesión. En este artículo se presenta un caso de fibroma osificante central localizado en la región posterior derecha del maxilar superior, de gran dimensión, que acomete a una paciente de sexo femenino de 46 a os de edad, revelando datos clínicos, aspectos diagnósticos, imagenológicos, histopatológicos así como su tratamiento. Central ossifying fibroma (cementing fibroma / cemento ossifying fibroma) is a bone benign tumor almost exclusively from maxillary region but can be in the orbital bones, frontal, paranasal and temporal. Progressive growth and disfiguring swelling of slow evolution are characteristics with more prevalence in the mandible. The treatment choice is a surgical excision of the lesion. This article presents a case of central ossifying fibroma located in the region of the right posterior maxilla of large dimension of a female patient of 46 years of age, describing clinical, diagnostic, imaging, and histopathological aspects as well as the treatment employed.
Cemento-ossifying fibroma-a rare case  [cached]

Journal of the Indian Society of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry , 2008,
Abstract: The concept of ′fibro-osseous lesions′ of bone has evolved over the last several decades and now includes two major entities: fibrous dysplasia and ossifying fibroma, as well as the other less common lesions such as florid osseous dysplasia, periapical dysplasia, focal sclerosing osteomyelitis, proliferative periostitis of garrie, and ostitis deformans. The cemento-ossifying fibroma is a central neoplasm of bone as well as periodontium which has caused considerable controversy because of confusion regarding terminology and the criteria for its diagnosis. The cemento-ossifying fibroma is odontogenic in origin, whereas ossifying fibroma is of bony origin. This article reports a rare case of an 11-year-old male who came to us with the history of swelling in the maxillary anterior region causing difficulty in closing of mouth as well as in mastication.
