Bottom Line: Very few cases of recurrence have been documented.It has been stated that histological budding of basal cell layer of the surface squamous epithelium is associated with higher recurrence and the presence of calcification in direct apposition to the epithelial rest is associated with lower recurrence.Hereby, we present a case which histologically exhibited budding of the basal cell layer, which could have been the reason for its recurrence.

ABSTRACT
Peripheral odontogenic fibroma (POdF) is a rare benign odontogenic neoplasm. It represents the soft tissue counterpart of central odontogenic fibroma. The embryonic source of POdF has been suggested by many as arising from the rest of dental lamina that has persisted in the gingiva following its disintegration. It presents clinically as a firm, slow growing and sessile gingival mass, which is difficult to distinguish with more common inflammatory lesions. Very few cases of recurrence have been documented. It has been stated that histological budding of basal cell layer of the surface squamous epithelium is associated with higher recurrence and the presence of calcification in direct apposition to the epithelial rest is associated with lower recurrence. Hereby, we present a case which histologically exhibited budding of the basal cell layer, which could have been the reason for its recurrence.

Mentions: An excisional biopsy was performed and the specimen was sent for histopathological investigations. The gross specimen was greyish white, nodular, firm, measuring about 2.5 cm × 2 × 1.7 cm. A gritty texture was felt on sectioning. The hematoxylin and eosin stained section of the specimen under the light microscope exhibited stratified squamous parakeratinized surface epithelium associated with a fibromyxoid connective tissue. The surface epithelium exhibited slender, branching, and deep penetrating rete ridges with budding. The sub-basilar connective tissue showed abundant capillaries [Figures 3 and 4].
