Central ossifying fibroma is a lesion in which diagnosis has proved intriguing and unclear for presenting clinical, radiographic, and even histopathological similarities to other types of lesions such as the fibrous dysplasia of bone and cement-bone dysplasia. It is a benign neoplasm of uncertain etiology and slow development in which the mandible is affected more frequently than the maxilla. We described a case of central cemento-ossifying fibroma involving the right mandible of a thirty-five-female patient by presenting its clinical, radiographic, and histological characteristic sand discussing some differential diagnoses.
KEY WORDS: benign neoplasm, central ossifying fibroma; oral pathology; differential diagnosis.
