ABSTRACT
Ossifying fibroma is a rare benign fibro-osseous neoplasm of the jaw characterized by substitution of normal bone by fibrous tissues and newly formed calcified products such as bone, cementum or both. It is a well-demarcated lesion that differentiates it from fibrous dysplasia. This case report describes a rare case of ossifying fibroma arising in the maxilla of an 11-year-old child treated with enucleation. The clinical, radiographical, surgical and histological findings are presented. Controversies regarding the terminology and classification along with the differential diagnosis are discussed and a review is provided of the literature on the subject.

Mentions: Panoramic radiographical examination [Figure 3] revealed a well-defined homogenous radiopaque mass distal to the tooth 16 and coronal to un-erupted tooth 17 with radiolucent margin. There was distal and superior displacement of tooth 17 with its root dilacerations. Tooth follicle of 18 was also present. CT scan [Figure 4a–c] showed a well-circumscribed and sharply defined lesion consists of a mixture of radiolucency and radiodensity with sclerotic border.
