Central Ossifying Fibroma of the Maxilla: A Rare Case Report

Moni Thakur, Vinay Kumar Reddy Kundoor, Sri Sai Lakshmi Preethi Vishnumolakala, Kotya Naik Maloth


Maxillofacial fibro-osseous lesions comprise a group of face and jaw disorders characterized by the replacement of normal bone by connective-tissue matrix with varying amounts of mineralized substances. One such lesion is Ossifying Fibroma, which is believed to be derived from the multipotent mesenchymal cells of periodontal ligament origin. Most of the studies showed a female predominance with the most common site being the posterior mandibular region. Here we report a case of central ossifying fibroma occurring in anterior maxilla in a 16 year old male.
