Cemento-ossifying fibroma is classified as an osteogenic tumor, defined as a well -differentiated tumor, occasionally encapsulated, comprising fibrous tissue. Abstract. Introduction: Cemento-ossifying fibroma is a benign fibro-osseous maxillary tumor belonging to the same category as fibrous dysplasia and. Background: Cemento-Ossifying Fibroma (COF) is considered by most as relatively rare, benign, non-odontogenic neoplasm of the jaw bones and other.

Cementifying fibromas may be clinically and radiographically impossible to separate from ossifying fibromas [ 12 ]. Thus, this points to trauma as a possible triggering factor, postulating the lesion to be a connective tissue reaction rather than a genuine neoplasm.
There was no compressibility or depressibility Figure 4. A lateral occlusal mandibular radiograph shows mild buccal cortical plate expansion with respect to 36 and 37 Figure 5.
Cemento-ossifying fibromas are usually well-circumscribed masses which expand the underlying bone. Following administration of contrast, the soft tissue component usually enhances on CT 1. Eversole and Rovin [ 17 ] stated the similar sex and site predilection of pyogenic granuloma.
Clinically, these tumours manifest as a slow-growing intra-bony asymptomatic mass, over a period of time lesion may become large enough to cause facial asymmetry. A larger tumor may involve the nasal septum, orbital floor and infraorbital foramen. Clinical, radiographic and histopathologic features of COF and other fibro-osseous lesions are overlapping and may cause confusion in classification, diagnosis and cementoo.

Considerable confusion has prevailed in the nomenclature of peripheral ossifying fibroma with various synonyms being used, such as peripheral cementifying fibroma, ossifying fibroepithelial polyp, peripheral fibroma with osteogenesis, peripheral fibroma with cementogenesis, peripheral fibroma with calcification, calcifying or ossifying fibroma epulis, and calcifying fibroblastic granuloma [ 10 ]. Cementoossifying Fibroma of theMaxilla: Lateral oblique radiograph showing a well defined radiolucency of the approximate size of 6.
Case Report A 35 year old female patient reported with a complaint of swelling on the lower left jaw since past 2 months [ Figure 1 ]. POFs are believed to arise from gingival fibers of the periodontal ligament as hyperplastic growth of tissue that is unique to the gingival mucosa [ 1718 ].
Central cementoossifying fibroma of the ceento sinus: They usually expand the bone without cortical breach 3.
Moreover, there is no histologic or biochemical difference between cementum and bone.

The radiologic differentiation of central cementoossifying fibroma from Gorlin cysts and Pindborg tumors is difficult if not associated with impacted teeth, with which they have a high association; the final diagnosis is based on histologic appearance.
Periphery shows few blood vessels and numerous extravasated red blood cells. June 25, ; Published date: Differential distribution of glycosaminoglycans in human cementifying fibroma and fibro-osseous lesions. Although it is also important to maintain a high index of suspicion, discussion with family members should be tactful to prevent undue distress during the waiting period between differential diagnosis and definitive histopathologic diagnosis.

The clinical, radiographic, histologic features gibroma presented and the various differential diagnosis are discussed. The WHO classification groups under a single designation cemento-ossifying fibroma two histologic types cementifying fibroma and ossifying fibroma that may be clinically and radiographically undistinguishable [ 1 ]. On palpation, soft to firm in consistency with no signs of tender, crepitus and non-fluctuant.
