Abstract

Cemento Ossifying fibroma is a benign fibro-osseous lesion that arises from the periodontal membrane. The periodontal membrane is a layer of fibrous connective tissue surrounding the roots of teeth. It contains multipotential cells that are capable of forming cementum, lamellar bone, and fibrous tissue. These tumours occur in the third and fourth decades of life, with predilection for women. The mandible is more commonly involved than the maxilla. This article describes a case of Cemento-ossifying fibroma in a 45-year-old female patient. A histopathological diagnosis of Cemento ossifying fibroma was made. An accurate diagnosis requires careful clinical, radiological and histological correlation in order to make an optimal treatment and an excellent outcome.
