Abstract:

The gingiva is often the site of localized growths that are considered to be reactive rather than neoplastic in nature. Many of these lesions are difficult to be identified clinically and can be identified as a specific entity only on the basis of typical and consistent histomorphology. Peripheral ossifying fibroma is one such reactive lesion occurring frequently in maxillary anterior region in teenagers and young adults. It has been described with various synonyms and is believed to arise from periodontal ligament comprising about 9% of all gingival growths. Here, we report a case of 20 year old man with large peripheral ossifying fibroma in anterior maxilla showing prominent ossifications in radiological image of specimen.
