Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma of maxilla  [cached]
Chatterjee Anirban,Ajmera Neha,Singh Amit
Journal of the Indian Society of Periodontology , 2010,
Abstract: Peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma is a reactive gingival overgrowth occurring frequently in anterior maxilla. It is a slow-growing benign tumor which may lead to pathologic migration and other periodontal problems, so it should be excised as soon as possible. The recurrence rate of peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma is reported to be 8% to 20%, so a close postoperative follow-up is required. Herein, we are reporting a similar case of peripheral cemento-ossifying fibroma in the maxillary anterior region.

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.
Bilateral Cemento Ossifying Fibroma of Mandible

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.
Juvenile psammomatoid ossifying fibroma. Case report
Hellenic Archives of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery , 2012,
Abstract: Ossifying fibroma (OS) represents a slow growing, benign neoplasm that belongs to the greater group of fibro-osseous lesions. Based on its histological features, ossifying fibroma is divided into: a) juvenile trabecular OS and b) juvenile psammomatoid OS which affects mainly the paranasal sinuses of children and teenagers aging from 5 to 15 years.A rare case of juvenile psammomatoid ossifying fibroma in a 30 year old male patient located in the left mandibular ramus is presented. Treatment plan included radical surgical excision of the lesion and restoration with autologous osteochondral graft from the 6th rib of the ipsilateral side.

Abstract: Juvenile ossifying fibroma (JOF) is a rare fibro-osseous neoplasm in young children. JOF is defined as a variant of the ossifying fibroma, and latter includes juvenile psammomatoid ossifying fibroma (JPOF) and juvenile trabecular ossifying fibroma (JTOF). Both variants involve the craniofacial bones with the trabecular variant being more common in the jaws and the psammomatoid variant being more common in the paranasal sinuses. This lesion is locally aggressive andspreads quickly. As it has a very high recurrence rate, complete excision is essential. A case of large JPOF involving rightmaxilla and other cranial bones in a 12 year old female patient with clinical, radiographic and histopathological features arepresented. Surgical management and follow up is also emphasized.

Abstract: Ossifying fibroma is a rare, benign fibro-osseous tumor that most commonly occurs in the bones of the craniofacial skeleton. This well-demarcated lesion is composed of fibrocellular tissue and mineralized material of varying appearances. Ossifying fibroma is a slow-growing, asymptomatic neoplasm that can reach a very large size. Differentiation from other forms of fibro-osseous lesions, such as monoostotic fibrous dysplasia, is often quite difficult. This paper presents a rare case of a voluminous mandibular ossifying fibroma which gave us serious problems of diagnosis and treatment. We have performed a bloc osseous resection which has preserved the alveolar border and has permitted (by apical resections) the conservation all the dents which apical roots were included in the tumoral aria. Surgical treatment in this case has also needed (in the same operation) a reconstructive surgery (because of the estetic and functional considerents). The defect created by the excision of this large lesion was reconstructed with an iliac bone graft and a titanium reconstruction's atela.

Abstract: Background: Fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws, including juvenile ossifying fibroma, pose diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties due to their clinical, radiological and histological variability. The aim of this study was to report the outcome of a 9 years old girl with diagnosed juvenile ossifying fibroma treatment.Methods: A 9 years old girl presented with a 6 x 8 cm sized hard fixed tumour on right ramus and corpus of the mandible. On the radiological examination tumour showed an irregular but well bordered, unilocular and expansive lesion on the right corpus and ramus of the mandible. There was no teeth displacement or teeth root resorbtion. Microscopically, the tumour had trabeculae, fibrillary osteoid and woven bone. After the clinical, radiological (panoramic radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging) and histologic analysis it was diagnosed juvenile ossifying fibroma. In the history of the patient there has been an acute lymphocytic leukaemia in the remission for 3 years.Results: Because of large size of mandibular tumour, resultant expansion and destruction of mandibular cortex, the patient underwent right hemimandibulectomy using transmandibular approach. There was no recurrence or complications for two years follow-up.Conclusions: Although juvenile ossifying fibroma is an uncommon clinical entity, its aggressive local behaviour and high recurrence rate means that it is important to make an early diagnosis, apply the appropriate treatment and, especially, follow-up the patient over the long-term.
Cemento-ossifying fibroma-a rare case  [cached]

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.

Iranian Journal of Radiology , 2009,
Abstract: "nCemento-ossifying fibroma is an unusual benign non-odontogenic fibro-osseous tumor that is limited to the jaws and facial bones. Microscopically, some times the lesion may be confused with fibrous dysplasia, and in these cases the final definitive diagnosis requires evaluation of the radiographic configuration."n"n In this article, the radiological features of six cases of histopathologically confirmed cemento-ossifying fibroma are described.

Case Reports in Dentistry , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/523751
Abstract: Ossifying fibromas form a part of the spectrum of fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws. They are rare, benign, nonaggressive tumors that are commonly seen in head and neck region. This paper presents the case of a 40-year-old female patient presented with minimal clinical symptoms, diagnosed to be suffering from aggressive form of ossifying fibroma of maxilla involving the maxillary sinus and ethmoid sinus. This paper emphasizes the importance of computed tomography in diagnosing such unapparent aggressive tumors.
